Some Minecraft Files Are Infected
« on: January 20, 2020, 08:35:06 PM »
I keep having this problem where every once in awhile, Minecraft files with weird names are infected with win32:malware_gen I dont understand what my problem is but I need it to be resolved. Some of the names the files have are things like minecraft_2851390000 (2020_01_2002_08_39 UTC).exe. I've never seen these before or heard of them. I have about twenty different files similar to this one in my virus chest, the only difference is the first number is changing between two different numbers. I dont understand what is going on. Please Help.

Win32:Malware-gen  = A generic detection has identified a program or file that has features or behaviors similar to a virus.

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck ..... in the computer world that is sometimes wrong = False positive
