Not a developer.

2 seconds in Google trying "39dll.dll". 4th result:

http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index...owtopic=111252

39dll.dll is advanced netcode for Game Maker.
( http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=90437 )

Explanation by Malwarebytes administrator from first link:
Quote:
This is no False positive though. We don't detect it as a virus, but as HackTool.DDoS.
As you already said; it uses advanced netcode >> in this case, has DDoS functionality. This file was bundled with backdoors we analysed, that's why we won't remove detection because nothing much legitimate about DDoS functionality tools anyway. However, in this case, we can adjust detection as PUP.HackTool.DDoS, but we won't remove detection.
39dll.dll isn't a virus/trojan/backdoor. It's a plugin file designed to allow Winsock support through Gamemaker which provides the ability to play multiplayer. It's harmless/useless on its own. It was picked up by Malwarebytes because it was packed in with backdoors programs during the time they were analysed, which means at one time someone probably tried using it in a backdoor app before it got sent to Malwarebytes.

It's safe. As for your second link I'm not going to bother trying to explain why that one AV detects it as a trojan, but it's considering 40 other more notable virus detectors don't see it, it's a false pickup and not cause for worry.

I figured it wasn't going to be something silly like that but I would still like a developer to speak to me.

Let me ask you a question, with how strict Steam's approval system is with games, do you really think they would allow a game to be released on their platform that contains a virus/trojan?

Let me inform you that I've never submitted a game to steam, nor do I know of it's strict approval process. Can you please link me to some information, posted by steam, on how they approve games and these strict processcies?

nProtect is mostly used with online transactions, theres also a "gamegaurd" version thats used with free to play mmos. No one really uses it for anti-virus. As far as I am concerned none of the big 4 havent detected it as anything.

Uh, how about common sense? Valve is a company that has been doing this for how long and has a lot at stake if they messed up by accepting something with a virus in it. Do you think they'd really put a game in the store with a virus in it? Common sense man, seriously.

This is like wanting to speak to the chef because your gazpacho soup was cold.

Yes, you just paid $20 for a virus. Happens all the time, of course.
