New game installer shows up as "Dangerous" by Avast

Post by Fred » Sun Apr 23, 2017 10:37 pm

As the title states, when I try to install the new version of the game, I get a huge warning from my Anti-virus AVAST stating it contains malecious parts

Any suggestions? Have you tried this yourself?

I have tried it myself, strange that it shows malicious, I'll have to investigate. Does it show any particular message with it? so I can further investigate this?

Nice to see you again Fred :) The game should be safe, but I'm sure Eddow will figure this out.

According to this, they should have whitelisted them now:
