Hi,

This is a generic detection (behavior detection). Please let me know if this detection is still happening as of now.

If it is, please zip and attach the smite.exe file, so we can have a look. In case it's too big to upload here, please upload it to Virustotal instead: https://virustotalcloud.appspot.com/nui/index.html#/home/upload and post the link here afterwards for the uploaded file, so we can download from there.

Thanks!

hello, i can't tell you if it is still happening as of now, since the game developers are still fixing the game after the big update so i can't launch the game properly.

anyway, here is the virustotal scan of the file that you requested :)

Thanks.

I can't reproduce detection on this anymore, so this has been fixed in a meanwhile already. :)

Yes, it was a false positive. It was a generic detection by our antiransomware engine (behavior detection).
