I made a couple of purchases today, Septerra Core was one of the two and Duke Nukem 3D was the other.
I installed Duke Nukem 3D without issue, but when trying to install Septerra Core I was warned by Vipre Antivirus of an instance of Trojan.Win32.Obfuscated.Gen.
I reinstalled Duke Nukem 3D just in case, to test, and tried a few of the other GoG installers I still had locally, everything checked out fine and peachy. The only installer I get this alert with is Septerra Core. I've also run a deep scan of my system to make sure I'm clean, which I seem to be, and I've also ran a manual check for the presence of this trojan too, according to a number of online sources.
So, either the Septerra.exe (the file reported) in the installer really is infected, or this is a false positive. I'm looking for a way to submit this file to Sunbelt Software at the moment so they can examine it too, if it's a false positive then it should be sorted because otherwise it might make people wary of buying the game.
I'm thinking false positive anyway... what're your thoughts?

GwynnFyrion: I attempted to run Might and Magic VI today, after having played it just earlier in the day, and got a warning from Avast! that it was a trojan. I was suspicious, so I attempted to run it from the program file directly, and got the same thing. I then did a system restore and attempted to run it again, and got the same message. I then had Avast run a virus scan (which I am in the middle of right now), and it has found multiple viruses, most of them with GoG files (Might and Magic VI, Heroes of Might and Magic III, Duke 3d, Septerra Core). The odd thing is that prior to this, I have played Might and Magic VI and Heroes of Might and Magic III multiple times and had nothing come up. Anyone have any ideas as to what could have caused this? I'm suspicious it was the patch from MM6 that I downloaded, linked in the MM6 forums here on GoG (its a stick actually), but there are no posts on that thread mentioning anyone having problems with it.

A recent Avast update basically caused the program to go apeshit, flagging numerous executables as being trojans. I actually experienced this myself just a few hours ago, when Avast flagged Zipgenius as being a trojan. A quick search showed many similar reports popping up on the official forums for Avast. I forced an update of the virus database about half an hour ago and that seems to have fixed the problem, so it's currently looking like they have the bug sorted. Update your virus definitions and see if that fixes the problem for you as well.

Thank you! I got the problem with Avast! sorted out, I just hope my save files on MM6 weren't affected >.<
I have had AVG give me false positives several times with GOG games. As long as you do not have it set to automatically quarantine files you can override AVG's action.

lucifon: I just got this. Im using ESET Smart Security.
Bought Duke, Postal and Septerra and as soon as I started downloading Septerra my HDD started churning away for about a minute when finally ESET popped up stating it had found a virus and deleted it in the Septerra download...

cogadh: It's still a false positive. See the earlier post by Grah.

Yop, and must've been fixed too 'cause my ESET SS doesn't turn up anything from either scanning the setup/installers or the installed gamefiles.
