    7dLauncher.exe detected as virus (false positive?)

    I use Kaspersky at home and today after the 17.2 experimental it detected the 7dLauncher.exe as harmeful.

    Guessed its a false posivite and uploaded the file to virustotal.com . Turns out, more anti-virus detect it as well.
    So far 4 , so i guess it is a false positive.

    If so, i guess it counts as bug

    Link to the virustotal report:

    This was detected by Kaspersky on my PC today as well. I have never had an issue (false positive or not) with this game and Kaspersky in the past:

    thats a short term solution and won't help people , that don't look into the forum. The pimps need to submit the file or report it to the AV devs to exclude it (or check what they changed so the AV gets triggered).

    Otherwise more inexperienced users might deinstall the game/refund it.

    I already submited the file to Kaspersky myself as false positive yesterday.
