I know I can make it as exception but question is what the * does that mean. Never before has any antivirus done this and now suddenly after patch at least 2 different programs are reporting this as malware.
This does appear to be a false positive of course -they do happen from time to time- but we'll investigate what's happening here.
Thanks for the posts.
Hi, I think I solved the issue (atleast for me)
Launch Avast and go to settings in the right corner and then exceptions. There you will have the option too add an exception. Copy and paste this file in the blank space, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Apex\R5Apex.exe" and add it as an "exception-file" and repair the game in Origin. Worked for me.
sorry for poop English

Don't tell me i'm the only one?
Tried to repair the game and avast still blocks me out, removing the exe file.
Edit: i did report it as false positive but still curious on why does avast think its malware.
Can agree with this - temporarily fixes this. Worth keeping an eye though, if EA release another update soon, we can remove the exclusion list - definitely wanna keep our rigs protected, never know when these crafty malwares try to get on ....
