Hi unreal folks,
I am 3d animator who is currently working for building material supplier as a member of its marketing team.
I use 3ds max for architectural visualisation but I have much interest of unreal engine.
And I downloaded and installed unreal engine for some simple test.
But I got unexpected mail from IT department manager as below.
How do you think? Epic game lanucher really may expose the network to possible ransomeware attacks?
I explained him and uninstalled software because I don’t want him to increase the security level of my workstation with render farms which means I can’t use youtube etc and can’t install any software.
But after that, I am feeling so uncomfortable. He might be looking at me with prejudiced eye like I am the guy who can play games at office.
Or just my feeling.
It appears that application name ‘Epic Games Launcher’ was installed on your computer on 24/8/2017.
Could you please advise whether this program is required for work ? If it is, we may need to increase the security on your computer as this program is exposing the network to possible ransomware attacks. If not required, then I’m hoping we can remove it from your computer.
Can you please confirm with me?
