NZXT CAM (potential unwanted app)malware alert.

Today windows defender started reporting NZXT CAM as a potential threat. Anyone else getting this? Multiple files within the program (see attached image).

    Wouldn't be surprised if it is some type of spyware or remote access I mean all you have to do is read their NZXT Flex user agreement and you'll clearly see under Section(i) that they have the ability to stop the functionality of any rented PCS the only way to be able to do something like that is to have some type of remote access

    They already collect their money from us consumers. Don't expect an answer from them anytime soon

    Today is the 26th and I just noticed as well that my NZXT cam has red markers on the side of everything saying "Another application is trying to communicate with your device, if you encounter any errors while configuring your device please close the following programs and retry : "

    No programs are listed.

    This is after installing HellDivers 2 from steam. I have not installed anything since over the past two days.

    Reach out to me on discord : Sechs

    Id like to talk to other people experiencing this issue.

    Si, tambien me pasa lo mismo, debi desintalar y empezar un escaneo del computador con MSERT de windows para eliminar los archivos.

    Yes, the same thing happens to me too, I had to uninstall and start a scan of the computer with Windows MSERT to delete the files.
