    My case with this is abit more complicated i am afraid .... I tried validating the game files once i found the trojan message from Eset and first i got the message that "1 file failed to verify and will be reaquired" . Then aquairing the file which is 2.75 mb in length , the re-downloading stops ans i get no "play" ability . I constantly get the antivirus pop-up that stops the download and no joy ... Any tips ?

    thanks and best regards

    It's really not very weird. The slightest change to either can coincidentally cause a false positive. With user reports the next small update will probably stop it. Then something else will trigger, get reported, etc.

    They err on the side of caution.

    BitDefender is raising questions about a Trojan in the latest update:

    upload_2022-4-28_23-20-26.png

    Now, before somebody tells me to exclude that folder from scanning, let me ask....why would I want to do that? That's the whole reason for anti-virus. There's been more than one occasion where a game or software update or release has had a virus (in most cases accidentally).

    I'm just posting here for the sake of sharing what my A/V is saying....
    but you can bet that I'm not going to let this update through for now.

    watch this thread, there have been several ESET virus scanner users who have gotten this. And now BD as well it seems, but IF it was a real trojan, all of us would be getting warnings.

    @CollierT11 A/V can't tell you for sure that you don't have a virus, and in many cases it's only guessing that you do (that's what heuristics does). It's a tool to help you decide what to do. So you're absolutely free to avoid the RC if that's your choice, at least until it either changes slightly again (and is no longer picked up) or the A/V definitions are adjusted to no longer flag the false positive. At which point you'd be using the same thing you're avoiding now.

    Can never be sure, but the 'group' testing sites are normally a pretty good indicator.

    Hi all, now I see this thread .... today I had that problem ... I began receiving an "error writing file" during a rfactor2 update/download in steam ... then rfactor2 started but while starting the game I receive a blocking message from my antivirus ... than I excluded the directories (steam/common/rfactor2 and "downloading"), the game starts but when I try to start a race, it does not upload the track ...

    that's where I hate rfactor2 (that I still love ...) because when something like that happen, there is no way to have it working fine again ... I already spent two hours for that and now ? what could I do ?

    I fear I will have to disinstall it and then reinstall ?
    Here I ask your help ... and if I have to reinstall it, which settings files etc should I save before that process, to not have to redefine everything from scratch ?

    first off, DO NOT un-install. Just a waste of your time when all your DLC begins re-downloading. The simplest procedure is to rename your player.json file and restart rF2. It will create a fresh copy. If that doesn't correct the problem, rename the entire User Data folder. (re-naming preserves all your controller presets which you can copy back when things get up and running.)

    rF2 does write to several JSON files when it exits and that makes it particularly vulnerable to corrupted files if the process gets interupted by a CTD, or lately, this virus scanner intrusion.

    This is pretty much what I am getting too, with latest bit defender update. Mine was bundle33 which was rejected when I attempted a game file verfication. Game file verification was halted immediately and could not be resumed without locking again.

    Interestingly, I did a full system scan and bitdefender found the same issue with “several bundle files in a cache folder that I had saved previously on another drive. It was a 2020 instance of cache.

    From 2020:
    --- Bin\Cache\bundle57\version0.0\bundle.jar=>net/rfactor2/overlay/WebProxy.class Java.Trojan.GenericGBA.31463
    --- Bin\Cache\bundle33\version0.0\bundle.jar=>net/rfactor2/overlay/WebProxy.class Java.Trojan.GenericGBA.31463
    --- Bin\Bundles\net.rfactor2.overlay.jar=>net/rfactor2/overlay/WebProxy.class Java.Trojan.GenericGBA.31463
    --- Bin\Bundles\net.rfactor2.overlay.jar=>net/rfactor2/overlay/WebProxy.class Java.Trojan.GenericGBA.31463

    Interestingly, not all of these files were identified, except bundle33 as issues with my 2022 AV observation? So what is different about those files other than bundle33, that they are not flagged by the 04/28 2022 AV update?

    So whatever this is it I not new to rFactor 2, but appears to be new to bitdefender?

    The problem manifests as:
    rFactor 2 UI loads, however in :
    Multiplayer:
    no animated track loading screen, just a black screen. Only way to get out is to kill rFactor in task manager

    Single Player:
    - no animated track loading screen. rF2 goes straight to what looks like a partial "watch" screen showing a static camera view, a disfunctional drive button, and exit button(upper left corner). A function gear button in upper right corner. Graphics tab is grossly under populated with minimal functions.

    ESET does not like the file and i did not succeed putting it under exceptions.
    net.rfactor2.overlay.jar
    (SHA-1 for the file is 1919155e2fdd3908ca682ad2f7ae04923fbec23c)

    virustotal.com reports "9 security vendors and no sandboxes flagged this file as malicious":
    https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file...d41815ad588ec4c93229dd31def8c3ecaa6/detection

    under "Details" tab, sha-1 for that file is 1919155e2fdd3908ca682ad2f7ae04923fbec23c

    if your antivirus has the rfactor 2 file in quarantine then this is the reason why you cannot play
    just go to quarantine settings find the file and press restore
    after that go to antivirus settings and exclude the steam folder so no false alarm will be in the future

    Check your a/v logs to make sure it's not quarantining something else. Try verify rF2 files in steam and try again. And check the a/v logs again.
