Your best place for support is in the Discord: https://discord.gg/epsilon

You'll find the #tech-faq area has answers to this, and any questions you can also be helped / answered in the #tech-support channel.

That said, to answer your question directly: It's a false-positive, there's no virus/trojan on Epsilon. It shows up because we hook into the WoW.exe to add our own functions so that you can do things like WMO rotation & scaling, etc.

If you’re Epsilon.exe was deleted / disappeared / flagged as a virus after a Launcher update (read & try this before posting in tech-support please):
- Restore the Epsilon.exe from your AV quarantine; or just download a new exe here (& move it to your Epsilon folder) : https://media.epsilonwow.net/files/Epsilon.exe
- Add an exception in your AV for both the Epsilon folder and the Epsilon.exe file. (See below for a list of articles on common AV's, including Windows Defender / Security)
- See the link below also for WHY the Launcher gets flagged if you’re curious. Specifically the last Q/A on that section: https://discord.com/channels/172452891485929472/735230259011518464/1008759015834128454

How to add an exception/exclusion to your Anti-Virus (Which you should do for your Epsilon client, including the folder & Epsilon.exe):

Windows Security/Defender
Norton ⁽ᵇᵘᵗ ᵃˡˢᵒ ʲᵘˢᵗ ᵈᵉˡᵉᵗᵉ ᵗʰⁱˢ ᵍᵃʳᵇᵃᵍᵉ⁾
Anything else: Google "myAntiVirus add exclusion", you'll find it.
