Hi everyone

I have been using Bitdefender for many years now without any troubles. Amazingly, after installing the game on my HD, this one considered avencolony.exe as a potential threat. I am pretty confused with this but maybe you can have a check.
Thank a lot and best regards, this game looks great


Heya Darkiger. It may be because we haven't set up digital signing for the EXE yet -- but we'll be fixing that soon.

Its weird I submitted the file to VirusTotal which includes BitDefender but it doesn't get flagged

What kind of error are you getting from BitDefender? Norton has an "Insight" module the semi-scans exe files and unless its in their database flags it as 'unknown but suspicious'. I'm wondering if its not really being flagged by BitDefender as a virus but as a 'potential' issue

Hi Satoru,

Here is the Bitdefender message :

The application ....\Avencolony.exe was detected as potentially malicious

Active Threat Control blocked this process based on the following actions : - The application's behavior can harm your computer

try the game in a virtual machine to see if it works
