Virus warning
AVG just gave me a virus warning about GSB, I wasn't playing it or downloading an update so it was really weird and out of the blue.
Now GSB doesn't start at all. I will verify steam cache and see...

I verified cache and it downloaded a small file again, "fmodex.dll", but AVG imediately found it a Ramnit.A virus and deleted it.

It's probably a false positive because of a new version of AVG, but the game developer needs to be informed.
Any idea how?

Just posted on the dev's forum so maybe best to follow there:

use Avast it could be a false positive

No, we shouldn't have to buy another antivirus or even just uninstall current one and install another free one.
It's up to the Devs to contact AVG with the file for a false positive check. This happens all the time.

AVG is notorious for false positves and not detecting actual virus nasties. I stopped using that years ago due to this. I use Avast now, which is a better program all round, after years of trying various solutions.

I've never gotten a virus playing this game and I scan with Microsoft tools daily.

I'm getting it too and I'm using AVG. Has to be a false positive.

I sent a sample to AVG for false positive check. Usually that's the developer's job.

I see the Developer answered in the positech forums, but didn't do anything other than complain about it...

I've been playing this game for years, and suddenly AVG says it's a virus.

You need to go to your AVG settings, go into your options and create an exception for GSB.exe and fmodex.dll. Then in Steam verify cache and redownload the missing file.

The game will work fine again.

its not unusual for AV programs that have false positives.
komninosm Oct 12, 2013 @ 1:28am 
It's been fixed now Motogeek.
