Eset detects virus

Postby phray » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:51 pm

I purchased FTL this morning from your site and began downloading it from steam, and then ESET detected a possible infection. "probably unknown CRYPT.WIN32 virus"

I'm sure it's a false positive, but I thought you'd like to know.

Thank you for telling us. A few people have experienced the same problem but we've confirmed it with ESET that it's a false positive. I hope they update soon so they can stop flagging it! In the mean time you should be able to put an exception in your AV software to prevent it from deleting/flagging FTLgame.exe.

Sorry about that!
