Is PS2 Save Builder safe to use?

We’ve been the home for Ps2 Save Builder for over 12 years and recently we’ve been made aware that some antivirus scanners are detecting Ps2 Save Builder as being dangerous or containing a virus.

The great folks over at Trend Micro took a deeper look at what was causing this and I’m happy to confirm that if you’ve downloaded Ps2 Save Builder from this site then it is safe to use.
The executable file utilises a technique called ‘packing’, viruses use this to disguise their true nature, and this is setting off a few AV products causing them to detect it as malicious.

Use the SHA256 hashes below to ensure you have a safe version of PS2 Save Builder:

  • Ps2_Save_Builder_0.8x.zip: bb4c39e392284e31bbbb89d610605b254a77724922353980829ba9a463a44768

[how to check SHA256]

If you downloaded PS2 Save Builder from any other site make sure you confirm that the hashes match exactly, if you have any doubt download again from here. If the hashes match exactly and your AV program still detects the files as dangerous please follow the products procedures for submitting a false positive result.
