Darkest.exe keeps being quarantined.

I've been playing Darkest Dungeon through Steam for a long time now, and today Mcafee keeps quarantining a important file for it to run. It says its threat is JTI/Suspect and a bunch of numbers. Even though i havent changed anything its not working. I would like to know how to stop it from quarantining.

Re: Darkest.exe keeps being quarantined.

Not entirely sure what is happening here. But I'm having the same issue.

There seems to be no way to allow a file and keep real time protection on.

If I need to choose between Darkest Dungeon and McAfee, McAfee goes.

Other system runs a different security software and it runs DD just fine.

Hi @DMW @hk2001  

Please click here for the document to exclude a file from Real Time Scanning. If still McAfee is quarantining the file, the file might have malicious codes/abnormal behaviour. In this scenario, scan the file on Virus Total to check the file and update us the results.

Karthik,

I had the same problem too.  I uploaded the problem executable to VirusTotal.

Here are the results (7/66):

Results of the non-Steam Darkest.exe (0/66):

  • Uploaded file:
    • D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DarkestDungeon\_windowsnosteam\Darkest.exe

Hi  @SpunjBaab @DMW @hk2001 

I could see that the file has been whitelisted for McAfee. Kindly update us the current status.

Regards,

I can verify that when running the scan directly on the problem file, McAfee no longer quarantines it.

Thanks for your help!
