General game discussion, anything Meridian 59 related.

Has anyone tested the 112 classic client download recently? I attempted to download it this morning and it came up on my warning that there is a Tojan attached to it. I have tried different browsers and two other computers, same results. Can anyone confirm this?
It's a false positive due to poorly written anti-virus software - it detects classic client files as they are written in a low level language and do things that appear to be suspicious (downloading client updates for Meridian/restarting the game after an update). The telltale sign of a false positive is your AV will probably flag it as 'something.Gen', where 'Gen' means 'Generic'. I've submitted our files to multiple AV companies so they can alert their bad software to whitelist it, but generally that protection goes away after we do an update and recompile the client. We will probably have to look into other solutions to this problem because AV software appears to be getting worse over time with false positives.
