EDDF Professional (P3Dv5) - Threat detected!

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

Windows 10 {latest update)  . . . has removed file:     C:\AEROSOFT\Mega Airport Frankfurt Professional V5\EDDFConfigV5.exe,  from my system and quarantined the file as severe threat.

 

Reason:   Trojan:Win32/Occamy.C  detected.

 

Obviously I am very concerned and as a precaution have removed ALL my aerosoft products from my system.  Hope you can investigate this and look forward to a SAFE update.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

I had the same problem.

There was a possibility in Windows Security to restore the item.

Which I have done. I remember a post here where it is mentioned that there are lately a lot of false positives and it is adviced to turn off any AV-security software, incl. Windows build in defender.

I leave all my aerosoft products installed...

However there is one issue now.

After launching the config tool, it claims that the scenery is not registered in P3dv5.

Which is untrue.

I choose not to register it through this utility and close it (Not save&exit)

Leaving alone this utility for now

Yeah, we know of this false positive and it has been reported to Microsoft. Needless to say it is one of the dozens of false positives we see the last few weeks. Nearly every tool that changes files (as a config tool must do) is seen as dangerous. 

 

All our files are checked daily with three professional tools. They are safe.

Yeah,I was confident it is a false postive😉.

Remains the fact that the config tool claimes that the scenery is not installed, which is untrue.

There is a simular problem with London-Heathrow Prof for P3Dv5 config tool

 

Thanks for looking into this

I'll see if we can shed some light on that.

Could you send us your add-ons.cfg?

Here we have source of the issue:

 

NEVER install Sceneries or other Addons in the folder Documents\Prepar3D V5 Add-ons !!!!

This is a folder to install add-ons that not register itself! 

Deinstall the products and use a Folder like D:\P3D-Addons\Aerosoft

Wauw , thanks for this feedback.

 

'use a Folder like D:\P3D-Addons\Aerosoft'

I used to do this before I decided to uninstall P3Dv5&addons completely this weekend and make a new clean install.

 

Because Prepar3D creates this folder ' Documents\Prepar3D V5 Add-ons', I thought I deviate from a 20 year old habit of not installing fsims & addons on the c-drive/windows system drive

Boy was I wrong, I could slap myself in the face 😁

 

'This is a folder to install add-ons that not register itself! '

I will write this one in big letters on my desktop😉

 

Thanks for your time

 

Johan
