Sudden rash of Download Insight deletions
During the last month I have had GOG and Steam game purchases crippled by Insight file deletions (exe files and dll's). I am aware that I can exclude these files but why would I do that if Norton detects them as malware? I certainly don't want to hire a doberman then bark myself :). The last game crippled was a very expensive one called Divinity: Original Sin 2 by the developer Larian Studios and downloaded from GOG.
Norton reports: Unauthorised access blocked (DOS2 the exe file).
osiris_x64.dll file removed. WS.Reputation.1 - mature file - many thousands of users - medium risk.
iggy_w64.dll file removed WS.Reputation.1 - mature file - many thousands users - medium risk.
These files are just the ones in Divinity: OS2, there are many other files that have been deleted, some of them from games I have been playing for a while. For example,
1) lostlands_thegoldencurse.exe on Steam - deleted - WS.Reputation.
2) colonialconquest32bit.exe on Steam - deleted - Heur.AdvML.B - high risk.
3) Firefox setup for Win 10 downloaded from mozilla.org - Trojan.Gen.2 detected - high risk.
4) stilllife.exe - GOG game - deleted - Heur.AdvML.B - high risk.
5) thedivinityengine.exe - Divinity game editor downloaded from GOG - deleted - WS.Reputation.1 - medium risk.
6) patrician4.exe downloaded from steam - deleted.
There are many other files deleted and I haven't seen all the effects yet. I am sure that the Download Insight system is useful but are any of these deletions because of false positive detections? If so which? I need to know because I feel I should post on the Larian forums and on Steam and GOG that games are being sold that contain medium to high risk malware or viruses. I also need to get my money back. (Divinity: Original Sin 2 cost $60 !! I am not going to wear that.)
