[FALSE POSITIVE]DCS World 2.6 trojan? worldgeneral.dll

Recommended Posts

Any word from ED on "WorldGeneral.dll" quirks ?

 

I've been int a miriad of threads reporting AV alerts due to some "strangeware" included in the update.

 

Was renitent to install it, but just did it, and got any alerts from my default Win 10 AV. Anyway, I'm worried about the reports and I think someone from ED should really explain what is happening here ?

 

Why is this supposedly "false-positive" being reported by so many users with different AV programs ?

Hi all

 

the team are aware, it is most likely a false positive.

 

Thanks

Bad day with Kaspersky :)

 

Upload it to virustotal.com if you are unsure if to unblock it or better not.

 

I have my DCS folder added to exceptions and dont scan it at all.

What a f...g and stupid explanation that I have to exclude something. It is the task of the manufacturer to fix it immediately since it is a problem for many users. I don't have to know about excluding files, it has to be done well without excluding anything.

And for me its not bad day with Kaspersky but bad update from Eagle Dynamic.

got the same error too with Kasparsky. try to exclude the whole folder but it keeps quarantining the worldgeneral.dll again and again. only way I found around it is by "pausing protection" all together.

 

anyone got a clue here?

BTW - didn't find a DCS.exe in the bin folder. just a DCS_updater.exe.

For me it worked by ignoring the files.

World.dll file corrupted error

 

hi

 

 

i updated DCS today (15th Feb) which went fine. When i start the game i get 2 error messages:

 

 

"World.dll... File corrupted! This program has been manipulated and maybe it's infected by a Virus or cracked. This file won't work anymore."

 

 

this is followed by another error message:

 

 

"DCS.exe - Application Error ... The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). "

 

 

I tried the repair option and it says:

 

 

"DCS updater 2.9.13.13 ... Succesfully repaired version 2.5.43503@openbeta"

 

 

Then i start again and the a/m errors show up again.

 

 

any ideas?

 

 

thx

Hi

 

it is likely a false positive from your antivirus.

 

Excluding DCS and ruining a cleanup and repair will help.

 

Thanks

Same here, the WorldGeneral.dll file keeps getting removed eventhough I have excluded it in my virus program.

Pro advice: learn how antivirus programs work, what false positives are, then stop blaming people who did nothing wrong.

 

Live's so easy and entertaining when you're educated. Love it!

And your reply is to attack me personally and imply i am stupid because i am not an IT guru like you (I assume?).

 

Never before i had false positives with any game nor DCS but only with this patch. The game wouldn’t even load. So this patch had a big change on something with exes and dlls that makes av go crazy - along with all the other bugs and major performance issues vr and 2d.

 

So yeah i blame the game developer
