Today, I took a look at the update Rog support page for my Z790 Hero card and because I use WinRAR I downloaded the update WinRAR V6.24.0 proposed by the support and after decompressing the Microsoft Defender antivirus has detected and blocked a Trojan Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml then after manual analysis of the compressed file downloaded from Asus Rog support page it detected two Trojans. They are Trojan:Win32/Phonzy.B!ml and Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml .

Well today I downloaded the WinRAR V6.24.0 for Windows file (SW_WinRAR_W11_64_V6240_20231019R) from Asus support and analyzed by antivirus and it is holy, Asus support discreetly replaced the infected file with a holy file. There is no more problem.

Well is it a free / registered version?

This is a free 40-day version that you activate with your license key, which you purchase if you want to use it permanently. Asus offers this download to discover it and you can then download it directly from the site of the author of win-rar.
