    Are you downloading from google play?
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    Yes. Each & every time. I only get the warning when game is installed. Never had an issue till last update. Currently uninstalled.

    This is the av app I use. Which I had before ever playing the game.

    Hey there!

    I've created a ticket to the devs so they could look into it. I'll let you know once I have more information about it. As far as we know, we don't have any virus in our game, haha. Maybe the av needs to be updated or something? But anyway, hopefully, I'll get back to you soon enough!

    Thanks for letting me know!
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    My av app is as up to date as currently available, but thank you for attempting to help. I hope to hear something soon, I miss playing already....

    The install dates on the first screenshot is jacked up, 2018-25-23, and the last one says 2018-07-24 which would not be the latest update. The one release late last week I believe. Hope you get it fixed soon though!

    I know. I can't figure it out either. My game played fine, no issues. I did an update through Google play on October23(tuesday) after the Neegan spaghetti/tomato thing that was 1st pic. As soon as it finished I started getting that warning. I've since uninstalled/reinstalled at least 7 times. Every time now I get same warning. Last pic was from October24(Wednesday). If you look at the time & when I posted, that is correct.

    Any news? I just downloaded a game to see if the issue was on my end or through Google play. No issues. Gonna try redownloaing WD and see what happens
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    Installing. No malware warning.
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    As soon as game installs..... Malware warning. Looks like I won't be playing again today.....

    Does it give any indication of what Malware? It's possible the fact the game can send you notifications might be the cause.

    My suggestion would be to try a second scanning tool to see if the one you are using is hyper sensitive to a specific 'call'. It has been seen before.

    https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/what-false-positive-antivirus-detection.htm

    Looking at your post of which antivirus software you use, I did a bit of checking and found this article:

    https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/android-test-2018-200-apps/

    The antimalware apps from the following 79 vendors detected less than 30% of the Android malware samples, or had a very high false alarm rate on popular clean files from the Google Play Store:
    AndroHelm, ANTI VIRUS Security, ARSdev, AVC Security Joint Stock Company, AZ Super Tools, Baboon Antivirus, Best Apps Collection, BKAV, Booster Antivirus, Brainiacs Apps, Bsafe Labs, BSM SECURITY, CA Uber Apps, chkitham, CHOMAR, devapp81, Ellena Rehman, Fast Tool Mobile Apps, fluer-apps.com, Gamma+ Labs, Glagah Studio, GO Security, Gotechgo, GPaddy, AV Antivirus Security Ltd, Green Booster, H2, Hawk App, Hornet Mobile Security, Iobit, ITIanz iT Solution, Itus Mobile Security, Kara Inc., K-TEC Inc., lal bazai, LINE, looptop, Master VPN, Max Antivirus Lab, Max Security, Mobi Fox, MobiCluster, MSYSOFT APPS, Muel Dev., My Android Antivirus, NCN-NetConsulting Ges.m.b.H., NetLink, NOAH Security, Nozzle Ltd, NP Mobile Security, Octa apps, OG Kush, Oriwa, Power Antivirus, Pro Tool Apps, Puce, Radiant Apps World, Rgamewallpaper, Security & Antivirus for Android, Security and Protector for Mobile, ShieldApps, Simply Fantabulous, smallapp, SmartToolsApps, Super Security, TAPI Security Labs, Topi Maxi Group, ToTo Studio, TransApp, UFGAMES, Vasa Pvt Ltd, VSAR, W4VN Team, We Make It Appen, Wingle Apps, Womboid Systems, xplus apps, ZeroApp Ltd., and Zillya! Mobile.

    We consider those apps to be risky, as they are either dubious/deceptive or unsafe/ineffective. In a few cases the apps are simply buggy, e.g. because they have poorly implemented a third-party engine. Some apps are clearly dubious, detecting only a handful of very old Android malware samples, and allowing all apps which contain certain strings, making them likely to pass some quick checks and thus be accepted by the app stores.
    As your chosen Antivirus software is within the named 79, I'd reconsider if the problem is on your end.

    Here is another:
    https://blog.avast.com/how-risky-is-your-android-security-app
    List of risky apps according to AV-Comparatives

    Please, for your own safety and peace of mind, see if any of apps below are currently on your mobile devices. AV-Comparatives considers each of these to be either risky, dubious, deceptive, unsafe, ineffective, or buggy.
    ....
    TAPI Security Labs

    Obviously one can find positive reviews for just about any product, I am more the type that looks at the negative reviews. Anyway, just trying to assist.

    Hope this information was of some use to someone.

    Since than I had my phone acting up it said I had 36 virus’s and it won’t unlock for a while after I type my passcode soooooo I guess it’s from the game it happened right when the update finished for me
    Message me if you wanna
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    ShadowaceAZ, as I've shown in screenshots it keeps saying or showing VIRUS : RDN/WABOT. That's all I can tell you. It NEVER happened till I completed last update.
  • freedydaddyfreedydaddy Member Posts: 1,603
    Oh and also my screen gets brighter than nonstop could that be a virus ?
    Message me if you wanna
  • ShadowaceAzShadowaceAz Member Posts: 3,391
    And all I'm saying is no other person is getting that message so it's a high probability that you are receiving a false positive.

    Maybe you want to email [email protected] as that is the developer. Most antivirus companies have a website that explains what each positive result is, Tapi Security Labs has no such place, so the developer is the best option.

    Doing a bit more searching for you, I find this:

    Wabot is a IRC worm that changes some settings in the system. It targets Microsoft Windows users.

    FYI: IRC = Internet Relay Chat

    When the worm is executed, it creates the following files:
    %System%/sIRC4.exe
    %System%/marijuana.txt

    Note: The file contains the word Marijuana in ASCII art.

    The worm creates the following registry entry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\"Shell" = "Explorer.exe sIRC4.exe"
    Please understand why I'm trying to show you this is most likely a false positive due to using one of the worst antivirus apps in the play store. I'm also trying to help stop a panic me to movement.

    I'm not trying to cause a pandemic of "me too's", I'm just trying to figure out why after using that same av app this whole time (from the 1st time opening the app EVER, till now) that all of a sudden I started getting the warning after 1 update. I'll try another av app and see what happens, but that still won't explain the SUDDEN problem I developed.
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    To start off with, I wasn't trying to a bad guy or an ass I was just frustrated. That being said, I downloaded a different av app. So far the game installed ok with no warnings. Haven't tried playing yet, hopefully this fixed my problem. I still can't figure out why the other av app only just now started flagging the game....

    Could you check the update history of that app? I use AppAnnie to monitor Apps I use, however that particular app does not have a high enough usage to be listed by AppAnnie.

    All I can see, having never used Tapi Security Labs is the most recent update and that lists as;
    Updated
    October 24, 2018

    Do you check daily to see when an update was done on each app? I'd assume the problem happened at a specific time because of an update to the Tapi Security Labs app, not NML.

    My old av app was up to date at the time. I updated WD on the 23rd (the Oct 19 update). After it finished it flagged with the virus warning. The game never flagged before, even when using that same av app on previous updates. I got a new av app. So far so good.
  • ShadowaceAzShadowaceAz Member Posts: 3,391
    Still good?

    Yeah. There's been a few "watch videos" that froze or reloaded the game, but otherwise no problems I've encountered yet.
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    The game is at least playable now.

    @LASTxRITES How are things going for you? We haven't received any other report about this issue, but let us know if something else pops up!
  • LASTxRITESLASTxRITES Member Posts: 19
    The only issue I'm currently having is the "watch videos" (to get 3 more keys...) keep freezing or restarting my game. Aside from that everything is working perfect.
