Hello everybody. I was seting up a server yesterday using Hamachi, and as soon as I got done, my computer picked up a Trojan virus detection. For those of you who don't know this, a Trojan can activate unwanted shut downs and cause serious damage to your computer. I got rid of it though luckly. I still havent figured out where it came from. I just want to know if unmanaged Hamachi has ever been known to cause a virus affection. Thank you. Heres a diamond: :Spider: :Spider:

These guys are right, it's entirely safe. I've been using Hamachi for months, no problems at all.

Yes and no.  Hamachi itself is not a virus and does not contain one, however it does allow people on the Hamachi network to access you computer and hijack it, Port forwarding forces their packets to go into a certain application.  

For example, you could put a sprinkler system outside to fill up a bucket, but then the water goes everywhere, or you put a hose into the bucket, and the water is forced to go into the bucket.

I would highly recommend learning to port forward, besides, cutting out the extra application can reduce lag.

Hamachi is safe. Must've been a coincidence. Unless you get any more viruses, you're okay.
This sentence is false.

Anyways Hamachi is pretty safe, but people can get on your computer if they're on the Hamachi network.  Just make sure your firewall and antivirus software is up to date.

Good day to you sir, If I have assisted, and or pleased you in any way, please do click the green plus.

When you say Hamachi network, do you mean the people on the Minecraft server your on or the whole Hamachi network?

Oh my god dooomguy, why would you think necroing is okay? There have been so many more Hamachi server threads since this one.

And yes, it means anyone on the Hamachi network.
