    If the loader is closed source it could easily have a backdoor. So is there an open source one ? thanks

    No, there are no open source loaders. 'Open-source' presents two issues for this to be the case. The first is that open-source (like GPL etc) is a license in itself, so the software has to meet the license requirements. Effectively making another program that should be paid for as free does not meet this requirement. The second issue is that open-source means the source code is fully open for inspection, and countermeasures could be put into place meaning the software becomes useless.

    Daz's loader is perfectly safe and contains no backdoors or anything else that is unfavourable. That said, you should only download it through the proper channels, as with any program you never know what a nefarious third party could do. Open source programs aren't free from these dodgy people either.

    To get Daz's loader, go here:

    thanks, but, and I don't want to be polemical, I mean it as a general question that applies to all loaders in general: what kind of evidence do you have to say that this loader is safe, apart from relying on Daz's word? Did someone maybe crack it to make double sure it didn't have a small backdoor? All it takes is a line or two of code and backdoors can be extremely silent

    Your antivirus system is so poor that doesn't detects backdoor variants?

    Daz's loader doesn't have any way of malware on his code :D

    At first, an good antivirus system detects suspect WinAPI calls from the PE Executable independent of the coded language if has Framework / CLR or no. Trojans, malwares and keyloggers uses keyboard and mouse drivers / Kernel API Methods to detect, log and send to a cracker. The .EXE from Daz is single and run at the same location from memory. Do you've seen any Windows Firewall alert when run the loader? No? It not opens an internet socket.

    Secondly, Daz is an experienced software developer with many reputations on this forum / in the world also ;)

    It's been out since 2009 and is used by experts and basic PC users all over the world. Don't you think that someone, somewhere, would of found something by now? But they haven't. There's no extra processes running and no network connections are ever made. And as I've said in the past, if you don't trust it then install it to a virtual machine and then monitor your network activity. You'll never find anything out of place.

    Want to play it safe? Use a BIOS mod or buy a license instead.
