Are the DgVoodoo2 dll files a false positive?


Recommended Posts

My copy of Malwarebytes detects the dlls included with DgVoodoo2 as Malware.Heuristic.1003 and I quarantined them. I was reading online that Virustotal sees the config file for DgVoodoo2 as malware but all of it is supposedly false positives because it's more heuristic than real, but Malwarebytes doesn't see the config file as malware only the dll files included with DgVoodoo2. I read they are seen as malware because they inject code into the game so that it emulates Voodoo video cards for older games. Even the creator of DgVoodoo2 says his emulator being detected as malware is a false positive here: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11 - Page 39 \ VOGONS And someone else has the same concerns but everyone at the GOG forum reassured them DgVoodoo2 is perfectly safe: Concerns About dgVoodoo 2 for Blood 2, page 1 - Forum - GOG.com I wanted to verify with you this is a false positive because I use DgVoodoo to play my older games purchased on GOG or Steam on my newer system because the older games were made for older hardware.

Please turn off the non default setting referenced in the following post. It is causing the FP.

Staff will verify soon but MB is the only one detecting these on Virus Total.

These files have been whitelisted already. Also, Our engine format and configuration in VirusTotal is different than our consumer and corporate products’ default configuration. In VirusTotal we use a command-line engine with different configuration and detection techniques/heuristics which might detect more than the commercial product. There are also false-positive suppression mechanisms in the commercial product which are not present in the command-line engine in VirusTotal.
This will eventually fix itself in Virustotal as well, as we don't have control over this.
