False Positive? (Dragon Age: Origins file nxcharacter.dll)
« on: June 04, 2011, 04:48:42 PM »
I had this file (nxcharacter.dll) flagged on my scan just now with the latest definitions. Better safe than sorry it went in the chest and bit a boot scan. Just logged back in and did a google search and it seems I'm not the only one with the problem (Bioware forums thread).

Any advice? Wait till the next definitions are out and scan it again?

Thanks in advance.

have you tested the file at www.virustotal.com to see if any other AV detect this as malware?

Not personally, I just sent it straight to the chest, it looks like someone in that thread had though.

sure looks like a FP  only detected by avast! ....

you can then upload the file from Chest to avast as a False Positive
https://support.avast.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=501#idt_07


or send to virus @ avast.com in a password protected zip.file
mail subject: False Positive
Password: infected

Hi Pondus,

Here it is given as safe: http://spywaredlls.prevx.com/RRIIHC3820842/NXCHARACTER.DLL.html
the dll goes into the installation folder...
file has a history of developer problems to run on windows back in 2009, could that have been a reason for this recent avast FP??

Also see the report on nxcharacter.dll and avast detection here: http://social.bioware.com/forum/Dragon-Age-Origins/Dragon-Age-Origins-PC-Technical-Support/Avast-Anti-virus-and-nxcharacterdll--7533568-1.html

I can confirm false positive alert on this file with current VPS. FP is internally fixed, new VPS will be distributed in few hours.
