Python porn files?


Go to solution Solved by TrojanK,

Recommended Posts

Right, I've checked all the titles/descriptions of the sub forums and I hope I am posting this

in the correct place (that'll be a first!!)

The other day while playing around with the program "Everything" I found a lot of

Python py and pyc files that had "porn" in the titles. Since I haven't installed Python in my system

and I don't know anything about Python I deleted these files (640kb). I noticed that many

of them were related to Format Factory which I found strange. Anyway, I checked a few times

since the deletion and they were still gone. Then today I updated my portable Format Factory

to the latest version...and guess what I found when I checked with "Everything"?....yes, a whole

load of py and pyc files with "porn" in the title!! Can someone explain why these files are appearing and

are connected with Format Factory? (screenshot link attached).:w00t::w00t::w00t:

Wow, that's really weird to be honest.  Are you sure you are downloading the Format Factory portable file from a legit source?

Would it be possible to share some of the actual files?  Specially couple of .py files?

DLord, there were 30 of these files the second time and I deleted them yesterday.

Then I rebooted to see if they came back, but it was all clear. I started Format Factory

again to see if they re-appeared, but they didn't...at least not yet!! I'll keep checking to

see if there is a recurrence of this.

I don't remember exactly where I downloaded my Win 7 installation disc from....but I was always

careful to avoid "dodgy" places.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

What is the source or download link? It appears someone added porn files to the app. 🔗🤔

On the application launcher it says "jooseng.blog.163.com", but I don't remember if I got the link here

on Nsane or maybe from ElChupacabra's site.

I have just checked again with "Everything" and so far, no more of these porn.py files have re-appeared.

I also put "python.exe" in Everything and it appears that FormatFactory and VideoProc are the sources (?).

I don't know anything about coding/programming, but I guess these two programs have been written in

Python. As you can see from the following 2 screenshots there's a load of Python pyc files on my computer,

2,474 in the second image!!

Should I uninstall these two portable progs (FormatFactory and VideoProc)?

"Format Factory Portable 5.0.1 FoxxApp"

 

Does the above posted title ring any bells?

It's possible that is a version that I downloaded, but I'm not 100% sure 'cos I update my portables regularly

from a few sources. Meanwhile I have been investigating and I think I have found the source!!

1) I uninstalled any portable programs that had Python files (Deemix, PDF Arranger, VideoProc and FormatFactory).

2) Then I checked my system using Everything...all clear except 1 Python license file in TOR which I assume is safe.

3) I then re-installed the portable versions of Deemix, VideoProc and FormatFactory.

4) I then searched "Python" on Everything and 30 PORN Python files appeared, related to FormatFactory.

5) So I guess the portable version of FormatFactory from ElChupacabra's site is the culprit.

6) Finally, ran a search with Everything with "porn"....all clear again.

Update:- I downloaded and installed portable FormatFactory from Diakov's site (Foxx apps version) and searched "porn" in Everything

                and the same 30 porn py files appear again!!

Nowadays it's normal to have python files on your system.  Even some programs install python itself on your machine to function.

The only way to really find out what those python files does is to see and analyze the actual file in .py format (text format python code).

In general, as most portable apps are re-packed by third parties, if not possible to download from the original developer's site, try to download from legit sites.  Don't want to advertise for any specific site, but if you look around you will find legit sites that have been distributing portable apps for many years with good reputation.

Those .py files are getting downloaded from the internet as the portable Format Factory you are using is allowed to do so.

You can try Everything's exclude list if you want to hide those .py files in search results.

 

Hint 😉

Spoiler

Thank you TrojanK. But WHY are these files downloaded with FormatFactory?  I mean, what exactly is their purpose?:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Format Factory comes with video downloader. There should be other .py files present in that location which are used for this purpose.

 

I think it's a feature.

You have to be vigilante installing these repacks. The last time I remember there was a homepage redirect checkmarked at the bottom of a Diakov repack installer.

You're right Crucible.... I've used a few Diakov portables and I remember that

I almost clicked on one of the options on the installer GUI..but I hesitated because

it was in Russian....later I found it was  a "change your homepage" option. I always

think twice or three times before clicking on something that I have even a small doubt about.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

So what are those files exactly? Some kind of redirecting?

Maybe you should try to open it with notepad++ to see the code inside.

And please do it while your wife shopping at grocery store. 🙄

I uninstalled Format Factory days ago after discovering the files in question.

But as Rudy5 and TrojanK pointed out it appears they are related to the inbuilt

downloader that is part of Format Factory.

And there was me thinking my wife was secretly downloading porn, tut tut.:dance::dance::dance:
