Virus in HUD.Vision

Post by UNleash »

So hey there,
I was making a backup before installing 1.2 Beta, and while moving the Skins,
I got a warning from avast! 4 Home that the file "fileExec.exe", located under "..skins\HUD.vision\White(& Black, too)\util" is a virus.
Okay, so I killed it now - but what I want to know - anyone else is having this?
Or is it, as soooo often, a false positive?

PS: It sees it as Win32:Malware-Gen

Yes, it is a false positive. You can put an exception for it in Avast and put it back with no danger.
