A trojan in Heroes & Generals or Avira Antivirus just officious, dur 00:36 mins
This video belongs to the category: Notes or observations.
Yesterday I was updating Heroes & Generals through Steam. Then antivirus software (Avira Antivirus Pro) alerted about a detected trojan horse. It was put to quarantine folder. Same thing happened today. Because this could be a real threat, I took the screenshots shown in this video and sent a support ticket to H&G developers 27th October 2015. I hope they can clarify if it’s an actual threat or a mistake in Avira’s product.
Avira Antivirus Pro describes the detected thing like this:
System Scanner: Malware found
Date/Time: 27.10.2015, 23:27:51
The file ‘G:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\downloading\0227940\hng.exe’ contained a virus or unwanted program ‘Tr/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2’ [trojan]
Action(s) taken: The file was moved to the quarantine directory under the name ‘52667b9a.qua’!
