I have been playing SWL via steam for the past 4 months at least, with no problems. This morning, Feb 17, 2021 I noticed that Steam would not let me play SWL and Windows Defender complained that the PatchClient.exe (not sure if exact file) had a virus.
So I uninstalled the Steam version and downloaded the install client from SWL website. Then during the install process Windows Defender again found a trojan horse and would not let me continue.
Is this being fixed? I don’t want to have to manually remove the trojan horse before installing, as I am afraid of missing some steps and letting the virus contaminate my system.
