Hi,

yesterday I continued playing stratego after a long break. But my anti virus program always reports a message when I open the homepage. I made a screenshot but the file is too big to attach. The message means that the access to a certain suspicious file was denied and the file has been quarantined. Is there a virus on the homepage?

Hi,

 

I can assure you there is no virus on stratego.com. Your antivirus software is reporting a false positive.

You sure about that? As the site won't load for me now - I get that circle of dots that goes round in a clockwise direction as if to say the page is loading, but nothing is happening. This is before I even get to the login screen...

The homepage spielspiele.de which I used to play stratego before is not longer working for me. The stratego log in window does never appear. Instead I used stratego.com in the last days but the same virus report shows up every time I go there. Directly before the log in window appears.

Forum Moderators.  ( I think I put this in the right place...)  

 

 

As info,  I am using Bitdefender and there are several urls which Bitdefender is blocking.    I adding the following to my whitelist which made the game work. 

 

www.stratego.com

game.stratego.com

gameapi.stratego.com

forum.stratego.com

 

  Additionally I have submitted those urls to Bitdefender as false positives.   I spent an hour or two looking through the code and as I am sure you know it does not appear to be malicious.   I did though see a ref to a crossdomain.xml. which looks like a gaming anlaytics engine.   It is possible that the Antivirus software is complaining about that.  Once I get a reply back for the three AV samples I submitted I will post more.  

 

Two those who worry about a virus , you can submit a url or a sample file to Virustotal.com  VirusTotal is a website created by the Spanish security company Hispasec Sistemas. Launched in June 2004, it was acquired by Google Inc. in September 2012.[1][2]

VirusTotal aggregates many antivirus products and online scan engines[3][4] to check for viruses that the user's own antivirus may have missed, or to verify against any false positives.[5]

 

Whether your using Bitdefnder or some other AV software look for the whitelisting options from your vendor.  However always  Whitelist with care.  Make sure to check anything you do with Virus total.   If more than 3 or 4 AV solutions hit on a url or virus sample ,  I would strongly urge you do not whitelist.  

 

There are tools like Cuckoo sandbox you can run software in to analyze what it is doing.   However if your not a coder or Security analyst it might be too much effort.
