    Default norton antivirus removes executable

    I bought Pinball Fx2 VR from steam two days ago and Norton Antivirus keeps removing the executable. It says that it is a trojan.gen.8. Firefox is also flagging this forum as Deceptive Site.

    The part that is being recognized as different viruses by some scanners is actually the Steam DRM.

    We checked our exe, then once we apply the Steam DRM to it, the conclusion was straightforward.

    The nature of the issue suggests that it is not only us, and that is correct: there appears to be a good number of reported false alarms.

    The forum issue has been fixed, but it takes 72 hours for Google to remove the flag so we are waiting on them.
