Ransomware protection corrupting save files for Brigand: Oaxaca

Recommended Posts


I have an indie game on Steam called Brigand: Oaxaca. If Malwarebytes anti-ransomware is turned on, it makes the save game function take about 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds, and most players will force-quit the game, which then corrupts their save files. It's easy for each player to add an exception or disable the ransomware feature, but most players won't know to do this, and will instead refund the game.

I've been working with a tech support guy by email, then was referred to this forum. I really need my game white-listed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can download the free demo from this website in RAR format: https://blancaster45.itch.io/brigand-oaxaca-demo

I've already tried uploading to Virustotal.com but the file size is too large.


Thanks again.

For all interested:
This issue should be resolved in the next release of Malwarebytes Premium. That release won't be until early January, but the build with the fix is now in Beta.

See this post which has details on how to obtain the Beta if you're interested
