OxygenBasic Compiler

Postby John Spikowski » Sep 27, 2010 0:38

This is a new thread for OxygenBasic Alpha testing. I'm turning it over to Charles and will refrain from posting anything that isn't directly related to O2 or FB. The All Basic compiler board contains some info that might be helpful. I think Charles is soliciting feedback from the FreeBASIC community as that's what his new compiler is written in. (with a lot of inline ASM)

Let's hope we can keep this thread on topic. Curb your anger and leave the attitude at the door.

As OxygenBasic is written in FreeBasic it surely deserves a spot in this forum, but imho its better suited in PROJECTS than COMMUNITY DISCUSSION.

My BAD. It should also be a STICKY as well. Can one of the mods move it?

(The FireFly project should have been tagged as a STICKY long ago)

Thanks John and FSW,

I will start a thread in PROJECTS as soon as I have the next update posted.

Hi,

I noticed Avira AntiVir and Kaspersky signaling a find of malware in the OxygenBASIC package (Alpha 009). You can give it a try on VirusTotal.
I guess these alerts are false positives, but it might frighten off some users. Maybe you could contact these anti-virus software manufacturers to ask them to fix their signatures.

Best regards
Sebastian

I've tried to eliminate any coding patterns that look viral (like embedded data in the code section) but some antivirus software seems to be suspicious of any small executables by default.

I had trouble with Avast on an earlier version, had to turn off the resident scanner for a while to continue working on the project. But to date Avast should be clear of false positives. The only one remaining was Avira but I see the that Kaspersky has started (again!). This must have happened in the last few days.

PS: using vista 64bit

A couple days ago Kaspersky gave OxygenBasic a clean bill of health.

Yes that's the one.

Would it help If I created a compiler compiler in FreeBasic to generate these executables from source script? Then this program and the IDE would be the only 2 EXE files in the download, and hopefully large enough to escape the predations of the AntiVirus.

Avira offers an upload form, which you can use to inform them on suspicious new files or false positives:

http://analysis.avira.com/samples/index.php

Would it help If I created a compiler compiler in FreeBasic to generate these executables from source script?

I guess it won't really help, as the AntiVir guard would notice the new compiled executables right after their creation. Then it would urge you to take action against the files.
But I think it will help users to download the ZIP package probably, as it would not contain seemingly dangerous, infected binaries.

Kaspersky detects the worm in the ZIP and deletes them before I can reach for the mouse. This anti-virus thing is getting as difficult to fight as H1N1 was. :-(

Okay,
I've made a compiling tool using FreeBasic. So far this passes all the antivirus scans at virustotal.com.

This can be used to compile the other compiling tools.

I'll include it in the next release :)

Charles,

Thanks for O2 Alpha 10 and the ScriptBasic embedding example. Kaspersky is still detecting one last file as a worm with this release.
