    oh wow ok, i just assumed you were kinda new by your profile.
    maybe try disabling the warning for beamng and then maybe itll work?

    so you'd rather blindly trust an antivirus rather than listening to many, many people who say it's literally just a false positive
    there's no disgruntled workers

    Is it normal for the computer to see the Changes as a trojan?

    I have seen that symbol before on this game when it updated so I’m guessing yes
    --- Post updated ---
    And this is why you don’t use cheap anti virus apps because they cause a nightmare when nothings wrong and they ruin your day

    all you need to do is allow the file in your antivirus and then you can play, takes literally 10 seconds.

    Dude what the actual heck
    But seriously it's concerning that so many people got the false detection, meanwhile for me it would detect it as a virus in every single previous update except for this one. Weird.

    Lol guy prefers to believe in his own mind conspiracy than on the devs who actually work on it, each to its own, i guess just don't play it till they fix it if u're so scared

    jeesus kids lack some common sense these days.

    Id trust beamng 1000% more then any windows defender, or 3rd party anti viruses.
    these anti virus softwares will give you false positive for pictures if you arent careful enough...
    its just plain stupid and 99% of the time, certainly if you know what you are doing. these "viruses" are just false positives.

    but yeah, go and let fartnite and valorant run their "anti tampering" software on your computers that probably gathers more information then the nsa....
    (if you even play these games... not trying to start drama with these anti cheating software. google it.)
    id be more worried about those softwares they include in most mmo's then beamng getting a false positive.

    If you actually google that virus you get a lot of websites where it says it was in some random software but someone else says it's just a false positive. But this still needs to be fixed by the devs.

    We just released a silent hotfix to address the issue. We can rebuild the game 3 times and get random results from virustotal.com ... Hopefully the new binaries are behaving better now.

    Stop wearing Tin Foil and behaving like Karen. BeamNG never has any viruses and your AV is being shit and giving false positives.

    How do you play a game for 5 years and then think that it has a virus out of nowhere ?

    I have this feeling that OP be Karenish Troll that has not come back after those 8 Worthless Bemarks that he has written in here. Pretty much everyone else but OP knows that BeamNG never has virus.

    this is happening to many steam games. It's just antiviruses being antiviruses.
