Hey guys, I see no issues with 3dxchat.com at the moment https://opentip.kaspersky.com/3dxchat.com/ It seems like it was a false alarm by Kaspersky.

Well if a single anti virus tool runs wild and block the game for you without a reason than who's fault is it? 3dxChat or Kaspersky?  It would for sure be nice to get some feedback from the devel

Could you upload the 3dxchat.exe to here and make a screenshot of the results? https://virusscan.jotti.org/ That site scans using 15 different virusscanners. Using my 3dxchat.exe, none of th

Hey, just wanted to throw in some info that might help the Devs. At a glance, it looks like 3DXChat (the game & its website) might be suffering from an expired security certificate. All it does is tell the computer "this app/website has been certified to be legit", and if the cert is expired certain functions are prevented. 

Possibly related, just this past week there were changes made to Security Certificates. Starting September 1st, certificates that were issued before a certain date are automatically declared "invalid". This was done to force web developers to change certificates more frequently, to improve security. If the Devs weren't aware of this ahead of time and happened to be using a certificate that was declared "too old" by the date, this might be why certain AntiViruses/Firewalls are suddenly viewing the game/website as "Malicious" or "insecure". The fix is easy, it's just something the Devs or their IT have to deal with. The certificates in particular are used in establishing secure connections, so if they're "invalid" you might not be seeing images/resources because they're prevented from transmitting across your connection since it's "not secure".

IRL I'm studying Cyber Security and I try to keep up with news and just pieced two-and-two together. Here's some articles if one would like to explore further.

@Gizmo it wasn't just Kaspersky that was was flagging up 3dxchat as an issue.  Others reported the same problem with Windows Defender and ZoneAlarm Extreme Security. 

Also in this other thread, it seems the problem is ongoing today for some people (Kaspersky is not mentioned in this other thread)....
