    I clicked on SotA launcher this morning, Malwarebytes blocked something as a trojan. Anyone know anything about a false alert or malware problem?

    EDIT: Went back to search it, I had inadvertently clicked on QA Shroud link. Malwarebytes blocked the launcher as a trojan. Don't know why or what.

    I'm guessing it's because of the p2p, my brother randomly gets those with malwarebyes. I would assume it's all from the same port 55721?

    Ditch MalwareBytes for something with a better false positive rate

    McAfee occasionally tells me it's blocked a connection in relation to SotA, but the game still usually launches and lets me play anyway. Like Chemical said above I suspect it's a p2p thing, it's pretty rare and no obvious pattern to it.

    just need to exclude the launcher from it. Its a false positive
