I just had something very bizarre happen.
I was troubleshooting a runtime bug with Steam achievements using traces. As I was making these changes and adding traces, my anti-virus suddenly jumped in and held my game executable hostage, claiming it was a piece of malware. After having this happen several times and finally restarting my computer, it has since stopped and I can’t seem to reproduce it.
At first I thought maybe I’d screwed up the project XML when I commented/uncommented the “no traces” flags, but I don’t think it would have even built had that been the case. The issue seemed to start after I added a trace for an integer, though again, I’m now doing the same thing with no issues.
Does anyone have any insights into how I’d explore this? It could just be a fluke, but I want to do due diligence and make sure an enduser isn’t going to also have a false positive.
