Many cheats, especially those made for BattlEye, can give you a “virus” alert – Even some of our cheats gets false alerts on certain antiviruses like Panda Cloud.

Why is this the case? Private hacks are coded like viruses are, meaning they actually change files and file-information in your (game) directories. Cheats need to inject .dll-files just like many viruses do, and that’s the reason some hacks can give false-positive alerts on certain antiviruses out there.
