After last update Window defender sees the server as Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml
The file SteamLibrary\steamapps\downloading\382310\Eco_Data\Server\EcoServer.exe gets removed making the game unplayable locally.

Same here for D:\ecoserver\steamapps\downloading\739590\EcoServer.exe for my dedicated server.. it was removed by defender too ! even if i try to install it again.. that was not when i dowload it but when i install it by the steamcmd in power shell !

Also getting this. What's going on?

I'd like to chime in (for my brother as well). We got the same problem, local worlds can not be played anymore, as the ecoserver.exe gets quarantined by windows defender.

While it can be restored manually it'd be nice to hear confirmation or rather get a fix for that.

Yeah, I would not take it out of quarantine. For all I know the developer's machine is infected.

We are going to investigate why this could potentially happen, but it is a false positive. Builds are made automatically on a separated machine and the amount of changes going into the server on hotfixes is pretty low, which wasn't any different in this case. Version control allows to check exactly what went into the code, there not being any malware contained. Any Dev Tier user can view the full source code on our repository.

It is generally known to us that new updates trigger some antivirus software for some people on every update until a few days after release, that has always been a problem that for most antivirus software can only be fixed by paid memberships on their respective form of "whitelist".
Most antivirus software that offer's a paid service flags any changed .exe as a virus in the attempts to scare people into buying software or services that aren't needed.
just set your entire steam library folder to be ignored by the software and that will fix the issue. If you use McAfee or Norton, you should uninstall them anyways as windows built in defense works better and doesn't cost you anything, while both of those companies hire hackers on their payroll.

Nevermind all the issues Windows Account Control has when installing software. Also, if you've installed Eco alreeady and the issue your having is when you run it your antivirus goes nuts but not when you installed in the first time, that's usually a good solid flag that the antivirus is giving you a false positive since you've already installed the 'virus'.
