Good-enough command line argument parsing in about a page of Java
// This is kind of shaped like lexopt:
sealed interface Opt permits ShortOpt, LongOpt, MiscOpt {
default boolean isShort(char c) { return this instanceof ShortOpt o && o.opt == c; }
default boolean isLong(String l) { return this instanceof LongOpt o && o.opt.equals(l); }
record ShortOpt(char opt) implements Opt {} //the "a", "b", or "c" in "-abc"
record LongOpt(String opt) implements Opt {} //the "option" in "--option"
record MiscOpt(String etc) implements Opt {} //something without a hyphen prefix

fractureiser public FAQ

What is this?

fractureiser is a multi-stage Java virus (and potential worm) that infects Java .jar files, and is a targeted attack on the Minecraft-playing community.

The virus was initially distributed by infecting legitimate Minecraft mods with the virus and reposting them to CurseForge under a different name, using a brand-new account. Eventually, someone who was logged into CurseForge downloaded and ran one of these infected mods, the stage3 payload swiped their browser cookies; and the attacker used these cookies to log in as them and upload a couple more infected mods under their account.

(CurseForge itself was not hacked - it was simply a stolen cookie.)

You can find more information in our research repository here.

Fix stuff being broke in IntelliJ.


When compiling mods in recent versions of IntelliJ, weird things start happening:

  • With ForgeGradle 2 (1.12-), none of the assets show up in-game (language keys, models, textures etc)
  • Broken hotswapping.
  • Potentially other Bad, Terrible Things that are yet to be discovered.
