Wanted to play C&C REd Alert, got virus warning

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

My antivirus program popped up once I tried to start the online game.

It deleted the cnc95.exe file. Said it was some virus.

 

I installed the game again in order to obtain the deleted file again, and submitted it to the online virus check of www.virustotal.com. And there again, I got one positive result. Though most antivirus sites do not seem to recognize it as malicious.

 

So what now? Is it malware?

cnc95.exe is the .exe for tiberian dawn? Red alert has RA95.exe.

 

"Some terrible antivirus software such as Kaspersky think the ra95.exe file included in the package is a virus. It's not. I advise you to update to better antivirus software."

Don't worry, it is just a false positive detection. You can report the false positive to your anti virus provider and they are going to fix it up (Except you have norton, these guys won't fix up anything)

Can you provide a link to the VirusTotal report? It's important how many and which antivirus programs detected something.

You can check the file for yourself with www.virustotal.com and see the report there. I downloaded the latest version before I posted this thread. And yes, it is RA95.exe ... not cnc95.exe -- i.e. it is the Red Alert 1 exe file.

Like I said false positive. I got the same thing with Kaspersky. Sent them the file and they checked it and found it was clean and white listed it.
