Just a quick reply to ask if youve went to the live chatroom they have on there to see what cs is saying about it?

I was hoping I'd have an email back from Enzo by now before i said anything to other players....another player got a reply saying Enzo would talk to them today and it never happened and the same about a reply to they're email, I always chat in 3D but at the moment i'm busy cleaning up a mess on my laptop..

Cat, while you still have time to edit the title of the thread here, why don't you name it "ABOUT TROJANS at 3Dice" since this only concerns 3Dice but by the title no one else knows that and can not be properly warned ?? Just a suggestion...:)

Hi Cat,

First off, as much as I like to help everyone personally - sending an email to enzo is not the way to be assured of the fastest possible response. I'm only human and we have 24/7 support available on supportteam@3Dice.com, via the website chat, via the player chat and via telephone. Depending on the schedule contacting anyone at support personally can take a couple of days.

The trojan you detect is most likely a false positive of your scanner. 3Dice software performs sha-1 checking on its files every time it is started and this completely eliminates the possibility of local infections. (the software would complain its files are modified and re-download proper versions from the website.).

Furthermore, none of the infected processes you list in your post originate from 3Dice, and so if its not a false positive then you have yet to discover the actual source of this problem. I'll contact you on the player chat as soon as I can Cat, and will talk you through the correct steps to pin this down.

In the mean time, you can download an alternative scanner (many free ones out there), which can help you determine whether or not its just a false positive.

Kindest Regards,

Enzo

Hi Enzo, thank you for replying I'm still not sure what's going on and I will talk to you in chat and see what can be done!

The only other problem I see is that Noirin and Wanda who are players in 3Dice also found the same results and many more that I can't name without they're permission.

Thanking you

dont panic!

Pretty sure it will be a false positive on this. i have tryed many different antivirus softwares in my time. some are better than others. i have 3D installed on my computer and there is no sign of any malware, viruses or spyware. i use avg amd somtimes that comes up with false positives. so if it comes up positive and i'm absolutly sure the software is legitamate and trust worthy i just ignore it. bear in mind i havent been the victim of a computer virus in 4 years. people get so paranoid about viruses but its spyware which is the most dangerous threat and even that is a peice of piss to detect.

TROJANS at 3Dice

Hi :)
on Oct 13th I found 2 Trojan viruses on my laptop that had come for 3Dice Casino. I e-mailed the detail to Enzo and then I went to live support and was assured that Enzo would speak with me tomorrow (Oct. 14th). On Oct. 14th I went into 3Dice Casino and sent PM's to live support about these Trojan's and to see if something had been done about them. I sent 3 PM's to live support and received no reply what so ever, even in last PM I asked could I be e-mailed with an up date on the situation :mad:. Is in now 45 hour's later and I not not received any information for any source about Trojan's.
I had informed some friends who play at 3Dice that I have MSN contact with and they too found these viruses, one of these player got a date saying Trojans were on her PC since Aug. 31st. (did nobody at 3Dice notice these?) These friends also contacted other players who have found same.
I have read the thread by another player about this problem and I have read the reply she received from Enzo on the matter, which was about false and positive Trojans. I was annoyed that Enzo could take the time to reply to a thread on CM but had not bothered to reply to what was now two e-mails the I had sent him, plus three failed attempts for answers form live support. After all it was I that had found these Trojans and quietly reported them to both Enzo and live support and not in chat room and causing a panic with players.
My point in this thread is to make 3Dice players aware of these Trojans so that they have the choice to risk playing at 3Dice while these Trojans are there, im my book false or positive means nothing to me they are Trojans and they should not be there, and I consider other members of 3Dice my friends and I want them to be aware and have the chance to scan and remove Trojans. But also know when 3Dice is opened Trojans return.
Also in support of the other 3Dice players thread...who was told to make contact with live support that Enzo was only human after all, well yes I made contact with live support and I still await an answer. To my friends at 3Dice who I believe should be aware of this get scanning and see what ye find.


Wanda :thumbsup:

Personally, I think it's false positives from your virus scanner, but what do I know. Try a scan with Adaware, AVG, and Spybot Search & Destroy, just in case.

... I used super anti sypware..

Can you tell us specifically which anti-spyware product you are using? That can make a HUGE difference in the chance of false positives you're likely to see. A few anti-virus/spyware products are considered "industrial strength", many others are ... let's just say they aren't.

Best thing would be if you could post your spyware reports here. That could tell us volumes, may even allow some sharp cookie here to clear this up for you.

PS. I'm going to merge this with another thread on the same subject, for several reasons including the fact that my suggestions here applies there too.

Summary : Trojan.Dropper/Gen.Process

Trojan.Dropper is a Trojan horse that drops Trojan horses (viruses) onto compromised computers.

See this for more info.

Seriously doubt it's a false positive when the anti-virus program is naming the specific Trojan Virus Program.

Gen.Process is probably short for generic process, i.e., this detection covers anything that downloads something from the internet.

Hi everyone, I've had a long and interesting chat with Enzo and to tell the truth I've learned alot form him...thank you Enzo :thumbsup:

A few words from the MAN HIMSELF to me:


well viruses - trojans and spyware 101 my pleasure
ok so for starters a virus describes an application that embeds itself in other applications and continues to copy itself all over the place. The term virus describes how it gets spread, and nothing really about what it does.
a trojan typically is an application, like a utility or a little gadget that actually has a hidden agenda.
(and might for example be used to send spamn from your computer)
the term trojan describes in that sense functionality, and not how its spread
and spyware is software, may be of trojan nature, that tries to gather personal information on your computer.
to detect and/or remove any of these, several scanning techniques exist.
one of the most commont techniques used today is what we call signature checking
a scanner doesn't know how the entire virus/trojan looks like, but it knows a small sequence that is supposed to uniquely identify the virus/trojan
and so it will scan executable files on your disk looking for these signatures
now unfortunately the presense of a signature is not a guarantee ..
normally these scanners automatically send out reports to the site of the manufacterer
so in a following update
they will probably extend that particular signature so that the known false positives don't happen anymore
which means if the virus is there .. it will not fail and always detect it .. but .. it might also find the signature in some other file that really doesn't contain the virus but just happens to contain a signature
with the 3Dice software, you are actually more guaranteed of clean files because of a second aspect
as with many financial software, we take extra security precausions
the thing is that the 3Dice software will check every single file it has ... everytime you start it ..
so the odds of 3Dice.exe getting infected are very very very low ..
it is .. it protects us from hackers ..
which is why I'm so sure




I also found out that Avast is not as good as AVG and maybe alot more anti-virus software.....I just hope all that is said in this post helps most of you understand what's going on with the Trojan that i've been getting and many others.

Adware and spybot s/d seems to be great programs, i've downloaded both in the past few hours and don't have any dirt or Trojan's on my laptop:notworthy

Thank you Enzo ....I will say this though if I get anything else that is coming for me i'll contact you in support:thumbsup:

Cat :D
