Win32/Cloxer.D!cl Virus Message upon windows download
« on: December 21, 2018, 09:35:05 PM »

Hello,

I just purchased the game and was downloading the windows installation when I received a severe virus warning from Windows Defender.

Trojan:Win32/Cloxer.D!cl

Affected items:
     file: C:\Users\XXXXX\Downloads\starsector_install-0.9a-RC10.exe

I got this message when downloading from http://download.bmtmicro.com/65980000/4561325695/

Is the download compromised or is it a false positive?

False positive! Just got an email from someone about this earlier today, looks like possibly their virus definitions got updated and now flag the Starsector installer. If there's some way for you to report a false positive to them, I'd really appreciate it. Sorry about the trouble!
