VirusTotal detects for renpy.exe and renpy-generated exe

#1 Post by iichan_lolbot » Sat Dec 10, 2016 7:42 pm

https://virustotal.com/ru/file/559d5ca2 ... /analysis/ - for renpy.exe from renpy 6.99.11
Invincea generic.a 20161202
Jiangmin Trojan.Heur.aom 20161210
Zillya Adware.BrowseFox.Win32.265017 20161209

https://virustotal.com/ru/file/f97f1b2b ... /analysis/ - for travnica.exe made with renpy 6.99.11
Jiangmin Trojan.Heur.aom 20161210
Symantec Suspicious.Cloud.5 20161210

I believe those are false positives as other 50+ AVs does not detect anything, but Symantec detect is something not quite good.

Have you contacted Jiangmin / Invincea / Zillya on false positives?
Have you heard of Norton / Symantec detects on other RenPy 6.99.11 games?

UPD: it is possible that Symantec detect is based on attached icon file.
icon.zip
(78.45 KiB) Downloaded 37 times
Can someone build an RenPy game with this icon and send exe file to VirusTotal?
I need to be absolutely sure that my system is not compromised.


Tried to build exe file with another icon and got this result:

All false positives. It's not the first time that happens to me too. The few times I bothered contacting them, they immediately confirmed "DOH yes they were false positives".
Antivirus are useless nowadays... :lol:

Some users reported issues with the Steam version of my own work, with anti-virus programs deleting the executable as it was downloaded. The only recourse is to file false positive claims with the anti-virus provider.
