Hybrid PhysX Mod Package Contained Trojan

It has come to our attention that the Hybrid PhysX Mod from NGOHQ.com posted earlier this month contained the Infostealer.Gampass trojan. According to Symantec, Infostealer.Gampass specifically targets video game credentials, log-ins and passwords. I would recommend uninstalling this and doing a full scan on your computer. I would also recommend that you avoid downloading anything from sites that do not scan files before offering them to the general public. We apologize to anyone that may have downloaded the Hybrid PhysX Mod after we posted that link. Thanks to Theron E. for the heads up.

It was a false positive, because of the free packer used to avoid detection by measures Nvidia try to take to block the mod.
