  • Potential threat detected by AVG antivirus while clicking 'checkout' in DotA 2 Store

    My antivirus (AVG Free 2012) reported blocking a potential threat while I clicked the "Checkout" button after selecting a few items in the DotA 2 Store. Sadly I forgot to take a screenshot of the message, but the AV mentioned that the threat was related to DotA 2 and "" or something similar.

    I know it's not much, but I'm kinda scared to use the Store right now because to this and I thought I'd mention it in case it's a real threat.

        AVG goes nuts for no reason sometimes, it gets alerts on the most random times.

          same thing happened to me while i was trying to open dota2 but on my case it said "dota.exe" has a 4 star threat and that i need to delete it. i didnt do that and now when i try to open my dota2 the game is not responding. i can only get to the main menu but then when i try to watch game or start a new game, the game stops working. :s

                Are you sure about that? So far it's the less invasive one I've tried...
