I just downloaded the itch client app and I had Webroot SecureAnywhere flag it as malware... It says "dllasser.exe" is automatically removed everytime I do install through setup. If I have it on an external drive then it flags "butler.exe" as suspicious as well. If I run from internal drives then the "0butler.exe" is not flagged, but "dllasser.exe" is still removed as malware. With either or both removed everything appears to be fully functional. Possibly you can look into those two executables? Are they needed?


Both needed, and both not malware at all.

This page explains what butler does and where its source code is: https://itch.io/docs/itch/installing/dependencies....

Similarly, dllassert is open-source, here's its code: https://github.com/itchio/dllassert

It would be extra nice if you could submit these as false positives to Webroot - if not, please tell me, I'll do it. Thanks!
