Hi I purchased a program called "Pinnacle Game Profiler" from power up software. It is designed to enable gamers to have full game controller support on games that offer no support for controllers.
However while scanning my PC for viruses I got an alert stating the main exe for this program containes a rather nasty trojan called trojan.gamethief.heur.gen according to my research it is a trojan aimed for gamers with the purpose to steal account and password details from gaming sites eg: Steam, Origin, Battlenet and Uplay, enabling the designers of the trojan to hijack and basically steal games purchased by the infected user. Is this a false-pisitive as my previous AV program (Avast) did not detect this but my new AV program (Baidu) has listed it as a critical threat. I would like some direction from the community as this it the main exe of a program that I payed good money for the enhancement of my gaming experience. I will not clean this file untill I get some feedback here on wether it IS a false-positive or if the company that created this software are out to steal their customers gaming accounts.
Please can someone respond ASAP as I am quite concerned as my steam account currently has 448 games and 167 DLC packs and I also have some games with Origin, Battlenet AND Uplay.
