Theokritos Posted January 5, 2014 Report Share Posted January 5, 2014 What:Norton Antivirus (188.8.131.52) reports the 0 A.D (0.0.15 alpha) uninstall.exe is a Trojan and quarantines the module.When:Saturday, January 4th, 2014Where:Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit - 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601)How:Visited the 0 A.D. website (play0ad.com) and clicked on the Windows download link. Downloaded 0ad-0.0.15-alpha-win32 and manually scanned for viruses. Opened 0ad-0.0.15-alpha-win32, redirected the output to an external hard disk (f:\) and then monitored the installation process. Nothing unusual happened until towards the very end of the installation when Norton Antivirus reported that f:\user\avalon\appdata\local\0 a.d. alpha\uninstal.exe was a Trojan (Suspicious.Cloud.9) and quarantined the file. The installation process continued running for a short time longer and displayed the 'Finish' message. The process was finished without starting 0 A.D. and research began into the Trojan report.
