False positive?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Today my Malware blocked file 'steam_api.dll'. Calls it as 'RiskWare,GameHack'. For 2 months after running scans (and I scan it often, like twice in a week) he wasn't seeing it as a virus, even during scanning all by himself in real time. He just did it today. I attach the log and also I've decided to put the file in a rar (and when I've putted it in the rar, he also detected is a virus). So, is it false positive and there's nothing to worry or is it a dangerous threat and I should keep it in quarantine?

Hello,

Thank you for the log & file.

This is not an original Steam file. The detection remains.

So, should I remove it?

You would need to make that decision on your own. There are hacks used by some to run or bypass certain things in games. If you did not load it yourself and are not aware of it then yes I'd recommend you remove it and if needed reinstall the Steam Client.
