Earlier I have found that some files for a video game mod have been mistakenly identified as trojans. The falsely affected files are custom launchers for a modded version of Super Smash Brothers Brawl called Super Smash Brothers Legacy XP. The main site for the mod is here: http://www.smashbroslegacy.com/ . I can assure you that the mod, game file and emulator have been obtained safely and legally. There are three false positives, two for different graphic quality levels and one for online play. None of them are viruses. Please let me know if anything can be done.
I have sent an email to email@example.com
Thank you for your time.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Quite often is the case that Steam/Minecraft and other game Downloaders/Unpackers are detected by Anti-Virus Vendors. The majority of them usually turn out to be a False Positive. I assume you followed the Guidelines/Instructions in sending your Samples to McAfee Labs?
As a note, each individual detection has to be submitted individually. Upon a successful submission,you should receive a Analysis ID#. After allowing 4-5 business days for the Labs to analyze/process, if not resolved. Kindly post back and provide us the Analysis ID#(s) and I/We will contact someone internally on your behalf and escalate your case.
All the very Best,
Thank you for the advice. I already sent the samples in a .zip folder with the password 'infected'. When you say that 'each individual detection has to be submitted individually', do you mean that I need to create a forum topic for each false positive, or submit an email for each file?
