Any seen this?
I was running some VB 6.0 code through the IDE today and when I clicked on the Toolbar on the main form all that showed up were grayed out buttons with the label "Hack Alert". So I paniced and checked my firewall and ran a virus scanner all to no avail. I then thought someone hacked my project. So i searched through it for "Hack" plus a couple other phrases and nothing turned up.
Did you run your anti-virus lately? :-)
Have you used a 3rd party component in your VB6.0 project ?
My guess is that a coder at Microsoft added this text as a "hack" or an improper way to code something (they hacked it together) and sometimes it just shows up in your program. I'm just glad it's not a virus.
