View Full Version : Xenonauts and Antivirus Blocking

04-28-2012, 23:48
Quite a few people have mentioned that SONAR is blocking Xenonauts. If this applies to you, please can you go to this link: https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

Once there, please can you report to Symantec that they are blocking a legitimate program? If a few of you do it then hopefully they can update their software so it doesn't automatically consider our game a threat...

done. SONAR quarantined the .exe again today on 9.5 build.

There must be exclusion settings. All antivirus software generally have - heuristics analysis often make mistakes

yes, I thought I'd selected it for version 9.2 or 9.3. Either I didn;t do it correctly or the fact I've had to update form Desura and from the 'download without Desura' link possibly meant I had to go through it again. I may have to go through it if I downlaod the full thing again in the future. I'll keep my eye on it.

If it's of any help to anyone on Norton Internet Security 2012. It's on Settings> Computer>Antivirus and Sonar exclusions.

I'd never heard of SONAR before this happens. A tiny part of me was hoping that someone had decided to mod in some Terror form the Deep after all. :-)

I would assume every time you replace the exe it would need adding back to the list unless the file is completely identical.

I'll submit the final version of the public release to their whitelist thing too, so hopefully this will be less common when the public build becomes available.

on the plus side, a number of pirates will be picking up false positives from their downloads. Hopefully that will push a few more of them to actually buy the thing. :-)
