    The referenced file from Atari's game "Neverwinter Nights 2" is being detected as a malicious file. The specific text is "probably a variant of Win32/Genetik trojan"

    This is probably caused by heuristics; I have mine set to the highest settings. It was picked up during a weekly in-depth scan scheduled to run.

    I submitted the file for analysis and have excluded the game folder from scanning.

    Hello Balthazor,

    Thank you for the submission. Our virus labs will take a look at it. Make sure that you are current on your updates and please let me know if this is still an issue a week or so from now.

    Thank you,
    Richard

    Will do. At the time the 'virus' was picked up the virus database was current (probably around version 3882.)

    I installed NOD32 v4, and with the latest updates it is not seeing nwn2server.exe as a virus.

    I read another complaint by a user (maybe using version 3.0?) that is still getting the file picked up by NOD32.
