Hello fellow members of mmorpg.com.

I just want to share a screenshot from my antivirus AVG.

As you can see, WonderKing did cause a virus, that I also found in my system32(as you can see on the img)

 

This is just a warning, this game sucks anyways(IMO), so it would definately not be worth of any regular mmo player to download this game, specialy now that it is containing a virus.

 

(NOTE: this could be false alarm, so consider this a warning, not a threat)

Please do not hype any gam.. oh wait, nevermind... forgot what forum I was on.

Actually what you are showing here is that Gamemon is considered a virus and not the game itself. Gamemon is a separate program (i think from a separate company) that many games (including some famous ones) use to prevent cheating into those games. Problem is that Gamemon has a behavior similar to a rootkit. As far as i know, it attaches itself to operating system processes in order to safeguard the game. And probably thats why your antivirus thinks it is a virus. If Gamemon is actually harmful and does more than what it says, that is something i dont know, but this is probably a false alarm.

Another problem many people have with Gamemon is that it is very difficult to remove. Even if you uninstall the game, Gamemon stays, and you have to mannualy remove its files. Even if the program is legit, many people dont want useless files and programs to remain on their computers serving no purpose.

Ndoors is also the company behind atlantica online, which many people play and is second from top here at mmorpg.com. I dont think Ndoors is really interested to infect people's computers with a virus by creating a virus game.

Thats one way to decide the reputation of a gaming company...........see how well it uninstalls.  Manually deleting files from the system files is just plain insane.

 

Another way is to try to cancel if it a pay per play.
