I reported this the last time it happened.
This happened with the last Mana update...only, not the same way.
This time, MANA.EXE is listed as an "Identity Threat" and is removed from the system (FlashDrive).
Here is some of the info given by AVG:
- Process ID 1814
- Fullpath: F:\PORTABLEAPPS\THEMANAWORLDPORTABLE\APP\THEMANAWORLD\MANA.EXE
***** Injects code
** Executable changed
** Executes from the file system
* Is terminated
* Visible window
* Large executable size
It terminated 9 processes
1 file deleted
It SEEMS that once you connect to the Internet with this game, MANA.EXE seems to change size as if malicious code was added to the executable AFTER the game has started.
I'm not into coding but have tested for many companies for the last 15+ years and this seems pretty suspicious to me. After connecting, suddenly your computer slows way down as if it were being used in some sort of bot-net. it never did that before. It always ran pretty smooth and used less bandwidth. IMHO.
Hope this helps.
