Darkstorm and winmm.dll
#1
Hello,

Lately i tried to use zonalarm firewall who reported winmm.dll inside Darkstorm folder as a root kit virus.
I saw 2 threads on the board reporting the same issue but no further discussion about it.

I did some googling and it appears that winmm.dll is really a trojan downloader, it is not a false positive.
I have deleted winmm.dll and Darkstrom is still working, so...

unless someone here know what exactly this dll is doing (not just assuming), i guess it is highly recommanded for all to delete this dll from darkstorm.

One more curious thing, i couldnt open this file with anything, i get various weird error messages.

is there here any expert who can desasemble it and look inside it ?

It's actually an executable that is your joystick driver in case you use a joystick to play SL.
It's safe.

I think this make reference to the real winmm.dll that is located in the system c:\windows\WinSxS\(...)

The one in darkstorm is maybe a cover, and the curious thing is i cannot open it, i wanted to check it inside a dll explorer, but no way to open it, even as an administrator, it says operation not allowed !

and firestorm have one, but this one is not reported as rootkit virus, curious too, no ? (and i can open this one)

did you try to open it Benjamin ?

I submitted mine to virustotal.com, and it returned zero detections. Maybe submit yours and see too, and if virustotal says yours is bad, and if so, figure out how you got a different file... unpack the installer manually and see if the winmm in it, and your one, are identical, etc. Far as opening it with inspection tools try booting in safe mode or even a winPE boot cd like Bart's or somesuch, to be sure it isn't already loaded somehow. It's not only a joystick driver, it also bridges between the media controls and the Windows audio subsystem, but if it's not present the system one you mentioned will be loaded if it's compatible.

SL banned? Search 'technitium', 'MAC changer', 'serial changer', 'ban evasion', 'VPN', 'IP ban', 'hardware ban'.
