For some reason my AV software started blocking the server where the game files from GOG are stored (I was downloading the newly-purchased games), claiming it to be a source of viruses. This certainly didn't happen the last time, so I was wondering what could've happened that got it blacklisted... For now, forced the program to ignore this and just scan the downloaded files - it does tend to overreact a bit - but want to make sure if there's really no problem.
What AV product are you using?

Dr.Web Don't think so, the browser doesn't seem to object to anything on the site at the moment.

Hmmm, not a very highly regarded product (not the worst, but closer to the worst than it is to the best). It is known for producing an inordinate number of false positives, so you could be running into that.

Eh. I think I'm going to contact them regarding this, though this is really the first time it decided to blacklist that server. My previous purchase was less than two months ago, and it didn't attempt to block anything that time. But since I'm stuck with this program at least until July in any case, I'll have to sort this out somehow. >.< (I usually dislike having to manually filter links that get labelled as dangerous, because I got a few viruses in the past from ignoring the warnings.)

No harm in contacting support. I mean it is their job to gather potentially problematic information about these things. Can't hurt, in any case.
In my opinion, it is very likely a false positive. Unless someone managed to snag a reroute through the link, which seems far fetched.
Just posting here to confirm that the issue was resolved. Still a frustrating experience though...

And the solution was... what? Was it an user error, or bad AV product, or something at GOG's end?

AV false positive, as was suggested (took them some time to reply, but at least the latest virus database upgrade fixed everything). Going to try some other software this summer. See, I've had cases in the past where simply ignoring the warnings caused problems because there was something wrong, so I tend to be a bit paranoid about this. (Honestly, no AV software is perfect, so you never know .)

I use and recommend ESET Smart Security. I use version 4.2 but they have v5 and v6 out as well
