VP17 - Weird URL and folder access

turboBB73 wrote on 8/1/2020, 10:52 PM

From VP15 when I click on: Help > Vegas Pro Home Page, it first goes to this URL which has a long string of Chinese characters in it:

(it does ultimately resolve to: https://www.vegascreativesoftware.com/us/vegas-pro/ as the final link)

I managed to copy the URL here (scanned with VirusTotal but yielded no hits):

https://mediasoftwareapps.magix.com/v2/productinfo.asp?product=vegas&place=Home&version=15.0%E3%A8%80%E7%90%A0%E6%A5%A8%E2%81%B3%E6%89%AF%E6%95%AA%E7%91%A3%E6%90%A0%E6%95%AF%E6%B9%B3%E7%90%A7%E7%8C%A0%E7%81%B5%E6%BD%B0%E7%91%B2%E7%88%A0%E7%8D%A5%E6%B9%B9%E6%A1%A3%E6%BD%B2%E6%A5%AE%E6%85%BA%E6%A5%B4%E6%B9%AF%E5%8C%80%E7%89%B4%E6%85%A5%E5%91%AD%E6%85%B2%E7%8D%AE%E6%BD%A6%E6%B5%B2%E7%91%A1%E6%BD%A9%E3%A9%AE%E7%90%A0%E6%A5%A8%E2%81%B3%E6%89%AF%E6%95%AA%E7%91%A3%E6%90%A0%E6%95%AF%E6%B9%B3%E7%90%A7%E7%8C%A0%E7%81%B5%E6%BD%B0%E7%91%B2%E7%88%A0%E6%B9%A1%E6%BD%A4%E2%81%AD%E6%8D%A1%E6%95%A3%E7%8D%B3%E4%8C%80%E7%A5%B2%E7%91%B0%E4%B5%AF%E7%91%A1%E7%89%A5%E6%85%A9%E3%A9%AC%E7%90%A0%E6%A5%A8%E2%81%B3%E6%89%AF%E6%95%AA%E7%91%A3%E6%8C%A0%E6%B9%AF%E6%85%B4%E6%B9%A9%E2%81%B3%E6%B9%A9%E6%85%B6%E6%A5%AC%E2%81%A4%E6%85%B6%E7%95%AC%E7%8D%A5&build=416&lang=ENU

Also, I just upgraded to Vegas 17 and right after installation, I got a pop up form my Anti-Virus as per attached screenshot. Why does Vegas need access to this particular folder?

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA

(I've blocked it for now)

Has anyone else experienced either of these?

EDIT: The only thing related I could google was this thread (but not resolved):

https://www.reddit.com/r/VegasPro/comments/hs04vn/vegas_is_trying_to_alter_a_file_in_the_microsoft/

Given Avast owns AVG - wondering if it's a false positive but would still like to understand the reason for Vegas utilizing that particular folder.

Thx!
