    @Ennis, your links have been removed by moderation. Distribution of ROMs is piracy and linking to such sites will not be allowed. Emulation is greyzone and discussion about emulators and emulation in general is allowed.
     
    Of what I have heard, VAC is only scanning active applications (including VM agents) and Steam related folders. So if you aren't running emulator while running game on Steam, there shouldn't be a problem. But then again, you are pirating ROMs and if you get banned because of being pirate, I'd say thats deserved. You can probably get GBA and the games for less money than what your account is worth.

    Judging by the video, the bug is still there, but if it was compiled with the defaults it shouldn't cause any damage.
    There is a newer version of VBA-M, and mGBA is usually considered better.

    Why would you get vac banned from using a program that isn't using VAC ?
     
    1. regardless if you had the legal right to run the game, the emulators have been largely stable for years.
    2. emulators don't read outside their memory space, cheat tools do.
     
    If you didn't get the emulator from the developer's site  ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/vba/files/VisualBoyAdvance/1.7.2/ ) which is from 2004, then you can't trust the download.

    I doubt it.
     
    You can scan the executable of that emulator by uploading it to virustotal.com
     
    There's also plenty of free antiviruses no excuses to not just uninstall bitdefender (or disable it) and just install something else. I personally use Avira antivirus, free edition.

    You'll never get a clear answer, but suffice it to say, if you're worried about this kind of thing, shut steam down when you go play with emulators. If VAC isn't running, then there's nothing to detect.
     
    That said, when you download untrusted files from the internet, there's a possibility of downloading malware that might be purposely geared to stealing your accounts on things. This is why you never download emulators off content aggregation sites, because they frequently do end up with malware in them, because nobody is actually scanning and testing the files on aggregation sites.

    Original VBA is very old. It is less accurate than newer emulators and actually has an exploit.
    If you really want to use VBA, use modern VBA-M. Otherwise you probably want mGBA.
