Didn't hear anything yet, I wouldn't count on it anytime soon.

@Kotori I kinda feel like you will have to either get your own way of updating MAL or add support for other places. I dunno how, but kiitsu updates MAL even now, somehow.

Well i mean even if an API is down, surely there's a way to spoof actual website inputs given you login correctly, as in surrogate the program for the normal web traffic and use bots in the exe to automate it.

I imagine it'd be slower and a bit of a pain to program, but i imagine it's doable.

Indeed, but then they added API and made Kotori lower his guard ;x And that's how we're here. I'm serious about possibly making MALu support Anilist or Kitsu in some way... I have no hope for MAL to get their API back up at any point in time in foreseeable future (tho that means a lot of workhours to change stuff, so I dunno if it's worth it for you).

I have a backup of the old "api" I used before the actual API, but most of it doesn't work anymore with all the changes MAL has gone through since then.

Hi, I downloaded the latest version but I have problems installing it because Windows 10 keeps saying the installer contains malware, a trojan called Wacatac.

I've used MAL Updater for years and I trust it's safe to use, and based on what I've googled is common for software to be raised as a false positive for this trojan, so I thought I should let you know about this, Kotori.

Hi, that's odd, what antivirus does it trigger on? VT does not show anything:

Installer

main EXE

Windows Defender does it. I don't even have antivirus software installed on my computer.

When I try to download the installer using Chrome or Edge it won't even let me keep the file on the hard drive.

I could download it using Firefox, but when I tried to execute the installer I got an error message saying the file was dangerous or something similar.

I had to go to Windows Security Settings -> Virus & Threat protection and add the trojan reported (Wacatac B1 or D1 sometimes) as "Allowed threats" and I finally could install it.
