Game progress files (.dat and .sav) ,malware question


Recommended Posts

Hello
almost a month ago my friend sent me a .net 8.0 C# Project (console application) and I helped him (I don't remember if i did ran it or not because if i remember right i didn't have .net 8.0 but maybe i downloaded it and ran it); Later I discovered that my firend if go to +18 sites (you understand what im talking about), and when I discovered that I was afraid that the project he sent me maybe was infected and got my pc infected (because maybe from the sites he goes to, the pc might be infected) so I uploaded all my progress game files to my Google drive and did a reset to my pc;
The problem is that I played a game (One piece pirate warrior 4) after I helped him but before I discoved to which sites he goes, and after the reset I downloaded the game files and used them to play.

Before the reset, ESET HOME Premium Security didn't find the project as malware or some malware on the pc, also after the reset and ESET (same edition) didn't find anything using of those game progress files.

So I wanted to hear (just to feel safe) what do you think about my situation and if .dat and .sav can deliver or be a malware in situation like mine.

Thank from advence for the time and the answers.

It is not clear to me what makes you think that your computer is infected. Does it behave in an unusual manner? Did you run a disk scan with another AV online scanner and it found some malicious or suspicious files?

You're right, I forgot to write about this part, I scanned each file (seperatly) using virustotal (don't have the url but remember the details), some files were found only by maxsecure as trojan.malware.300983.susgen and somefiles were only found by bkavpro as w64.aidetectmalware.

But antiviruses like ESET(which is what i have on my pc) bitdefender , norton and more reputable ones didn't find anything and the files that was found as malware was found only by one antivirus (maxsecure or bkav pro).

And I wanted to scan the files because my friend that sent me the project, went to +18 sites (and you know what I'm talking about)

Malware typically spreads in the form of executable files or scripts that are associated with a script interpreter. In order for malware to be present in binary data files, a vulnerability would need to exist in the application that opens the files, in this case the game that the files belong to which is highly unlikely.

Also can the reupload and rescanning mess up the result ?
