    getting this immediately after updating, can you confirm this is false flag or not?

    3 install files got flagged and quarantined and setup file got flagged.


    Yes, trojan/virus messages with vorpX always are a false positive.

    Probably due to vorpX injecting other program some AV-programs notoriously flag each new version as malicious when they do their apparently less than perfect guesswork.

    Ideally please report the issue to your AV vendor as false positive so they can address the problem.

    In the meantime please exclude the vorpX program folder from scanning if it allows you to do so.

    If you use anything else than Windows Defender, consider to switch. While that isn’t a 100% guarantee for avoiding false vorpX positives (happened once there too so far), it’s a lot less likely than experiencing this with some of the more invasive AV programs like BitDefender, Kaspersky etc.


    Affected items:

    startup: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\vorpX ….
    file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Animation Labs\vorpX\vorpControl.exe
    file: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\vorpX\Sta …

    (the 2x … -> somehow the windows threat report cuts off a tiny part of the right side of filepath so I don’t know whats in the …)


    its windows defender that flagged it
    thanks for quick reply


    Add the C:\Program Files (x86)\Animation Labs\vorpX\ folder to the exclusion list and see whether that helps.

    The better contact in such a case is your AV vendor. They should have some procedure in place to report false positives for their users.

    Brief update: no issue with the latest Windows Defender definitions (1.259.764.0) here. If you don’t have that yet, try to update manually, that will probably suffice to solve the issue.


    I just had Windows Defender recognizing vorpControl.exe as infected with Win32/Fuerboos.B!cl trojan.
    Didn’t happen before update.

    I just added vorpx to exclude list.

    I trust you Ralf, but don’t mess with my cryptos :D


    That can happen with a new release unfortunately. Judging from prior releases it should be gone soon. Microsoft is usually fast fixing false positives.

    Until then excluding the vorpX program folder from scanning is the right thing to do.


    I am having the same problem. I am going to wait until Windows defender clears it as a false positive. Thanks!


    You can also report the issue as false positive to MS.

    Until they fix it, excluding the vorpX program folder is the right thing to do.
