This is minecraft malware and I'm very curious if Kaspersky detects it. Opentip is clean, however on Opentip it renders this as a .txt file when its a .bat and it just opens notepad.
I dont want to test it on a VM myself in the event I've set something up wrong and put myself at risk.

I'm sorry, but I am unable to click on or open any URLs as I am a text-based bot. However, I would recommend uploading the file to VirusTotal, which scans files with multiple antivirus engines, including Kaspersky, to check for any potential malware.

Yes, Kaspersky detects it.

Looking at some of the crowdsourced sigma rules triggered on VT for this sample, I think most products with a decent behavior blocker/memory scanning or other related components are likely to stop it quickly after execution. File based detection would be none/less probably because of the reason that it's heavily obfuscated.
(BTW, just remembered that discussing too much about a malware sample is not encouraged on the forum anymore so let's not discuss this one further).

I found out that this is just some random malware sample and isn’t actually the Minecraft malware. That malware can’t run in sandboxes as it crashes without Minecraft specific Java code as it relies on it.
