Questions re:getting started

04 Aug 2018, 14:28

What is the difference between AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01-3+ga4de083.zip and AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01.zip in https://autohotkey.com/download/1.1/ ? I couldn't find anything looking like a build identifier resembling this on the github, nor anything telling what the extra one is, but the zip contents look like a more recent patch to be applied over the other one...

Does the Installer.ahk do everything the exe package would?

Also, in relation to https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=51243, thought I'd report my findings and ask some questions: Chrome still doesn't like the downloads folders here. Doing URL scans on VirusTotal, both zips pass with 0/67, and the exe passes with 0/68. But when I download and use the file scan, it instead reports:

2/60 AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01-3+ga4de083.zip
Bkav W32.eHeur.Malware12
Cylance Unsafe

7/60 AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01.zip
Bkav W32.eHeur.Malware12
Cylance Unsafe
Jiangmin Trojan.Spora.aac
Rising Malware.Heuristic!ET#91% (RDM+:cmRtazoSAQXfQEYA2wxDiB1xnCOP)
TrendMicro-HouseCall Suspicious_GEN.F47V0604
VBA32 Trojan.VBKrypt
ViRobot Dropper.Agent.1693184

3/67 AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01_setup.exe
Jiangmin Trojan.PSW.Coins.lz
Rising Malware.Heuristic!ET#91% (RDM+:cmRtazocn9uKmUNJMKUDnwqtCNQM)
TrendMicro-HouseCall Suspicious_GEN.F47V0604

Are these normal, e.g. do others get these results when scanning through https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/upload's file option, or do I have potential corruption/rootkit/something going on here? Are they safe to use, and the best current stable public release? It's very strange that the file and URL options are producing different results... the file hashes are the same. Of particular interest to me is that TrendMicro's normal scan is disagreeing with its TrendMicro-HouseCall scan - possibly because the normal scan has less aggressive heuristic settings than what VT currently uses for HouseCall (which I suspect isn't configurable.)

AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01-3+ga4de083.zip is a test build: https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic ... 83#p228650 I think it was created by our main developer in response to a specific request from one of our users. It probably contains only these parts which were really changed.

In doubt, use the version that is named in the usual way: AutoHotkey_1.1.29.01 etc.

These virustotal numbers don't look unusual - I get them, too (I now only checked the two zip files). Unfortunately, experience tells us that you cannot excpect logic or reason when dealing with anti-virus programs... :shifty:
