    bitdefender blocked launcher.exe client.exe version.txt and runes of magic.exe out of the blue and said it's ransomware, has anyone had this problem aswell? this is the first time bitdefender does this, i downloaded like 4 games this past week and had no problems.

    BitDefender tends to be very detection happy, very often throwing false positives.

    There haven't been any other reports of this recently. Currently the server is down while I await information from the ROM Team.

    its hard to believe this is legit. seems like more tactics from the competition.
