call of duty 4 punk buster a threat?
« on: September 17, 2011, 02:15:49 AM »
I did a virus scan which i every so often to stay safe. This time however its picked up something that im not sure is a real threat or not. In my call of duty 4 modern warfare folder its decided that two files in its punk buster folder are a root kit. Now i do know that call of duty 4 uses some form of drm that is abit dodgy. But if i delete or remove them to virus chest isn't that gonna break the game?
Thanks for any advice.

upload suspicious file(s) to www.virustotal.com and test with 44 malware scanners
when you have the result, copy the url in the address bar and post it here for us to see

Generic detection + only Avast! and Gdata (which uses Avast! engine) detecting means it is probably a false positive.
