3ds Max Scene Security Tools
Digitally signed app
The 3ds Max Scene Security Tools is Autodesk's recommended way to detect and remove known 3rd party malicious scripts identified as CRP\ADSL, ALC, ALC2, PhysXPluginMfx, MSCPROP, and their variants. The malicious scripts can corrupt the Autodesk® 3ds Max® environment, cause data loss and instability, as well as spread to other systems through sharing of 3ds Max scene files.
Autodesk recommends that all customers running supported versions of 3ds Max, including 3ds Max educational licenses, 3ds Max Indie and 3ds Max Trial versions, download and install the 3ds Max Scene Security Tools application to help detect and resolve issues caused by 3rd party malicious scripts.

No more to support for 3ds Max 2015-2017?! Why remove to support for 3ds Max 2015-2017?
2.1.4 didn't work for me. Just now, I uninstalled 2.1.4 and installed 2.1.3, and it worked. WHAT
I'm glad I kept the 2.1.3 installer or this would be a one star review and I would have to use a paid alternative, which is a piece of crap
Thanks you very much
After installing security-tools2023-2.1.1-038, when starting 3DsMax 2019 (188.8.131.5217), an error began to appear -- Unknown property: "LogEventById" in <Interface:SecurityTools>. Help to remove this warning when starting 3DsMAX. This error does not affect the operation of the program, but is very annoying.
The same problem. Is it possible remove this bug?
same error. tried to reinstall but the error is still there...
This issue has been fixed in the new 3ds Max Security Tools 2.1.3: "What's new in version 2.1.3: Fixed issue where a scripted runtime exception is thrown when starting 3ds Max 2019 Update 2 and 3 after installing version 2.1.2."
very good very good very good very good very good very good very good very good very good very good
Thank you so much
It cleared UNDO virus from my files
A dialog box will pop up every time you open the scene, which is troublesome. Can you add an automatic clear function in quiet mode?
Hello Jonike, I was unable to reproduce the issue you reported using 3ds Max 2021 or 2022 with the latest version of the Scene Security Tools, namely 2.0.1. I ran 3dsmax.exe -silent and opened a few files that contain the known malwares. When 3ds Max is in silent mode, Scene Security Tools cleans the scene and environment automatically, and logs these actions to the Maxscript Listener and Max.log For example: ALC2 Security Tool 1.3 - ALC2 corruption found in file: <path_to_infected_scenefile> ALC2 Security Tool 1.3 - Automatic cleanup of ALC2 in scene performed since in quiet mode. What version of 3ds Max and Scene Security Tools are using?
Dear Qing Su, thank you for your comment. Please contact Autodesk Support and share a 3ds Max scene or script file you suspect it's infected with a new malware or a variant of a known malware. Thank you. (Google Translation) 亲爱的苏青，谢谢您的评论。请联系Autodesk支持并共享一个3ds Max场景或脚本文件，如果您怀疑该场景或脚本文件感染了新的恶意软件或已知恶意软件的变体。谢谢你。

Dear Qing Su, we released the Scene Security Tools 2.0 today, which can clean the scene you sent us. Please download the new version. Thank you! (Google Translation) 亲爱的苏青，我们今天发布了Scene Security Tools 2.0，可以清理您发送给我们的场景。请下载新版本。谢谢！
NO acaba de funcionar en archivos por ejemplo de las versiones 2019 abiertas en 2021.
Debe instalarse en alguna carpeta en concreto?
Simplemente siga las instrucciones del programa de instalación. La herramienta debería instalarse de forma predeterminada en C: \ ProgramData \ Autodesk \ ApplicationPlugins \ 3dsMaxSecurityTools. Háganos saber si este no es su caso..
I never download any 3dsmax software from malicious webservers. Only from Autodesk.
I never has any problems with 2017.
As far as i know the malware can be spread by 3d models and other assets you load into MAX. I had the .ALC problem a couple of months ago, Before this tool i used Prunescene.mzp wich is some sort of antivirus that runs inside MAX, detected and cleaned the infected scenes when opening and gives you the possibility to scan folders too, worked great.
how can i install correctly?
Hi parisa, simply follow the instructions in the setup program. The tool should install by default to C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\3dsMaxSecurityTools. Please let us know if this is not the case for you.
I have a bad experience using Prune Scene. This program contains a virus generator that is detected by the anti-virus proactive defense systems for operating systems (HIPS). Be careful.
It somehow penetrates the system folders, the system registry and creates its own Trojan generator. It is very difficult to remove it from the operating system. It prevents 3ds Max from starting and infects scenes.
Use Autodesk Security Tools Only!
This is a lie. Show evidence!
Yep, never had troubles with Prune Scene - Still waiting for evidence... :)
Are we the only one getting the error "Product failed to install"? We used to have a startup script for this but that does not work for 2020, feel a little unprotected as a paying customer here... (and we've had data losses in the past due to this). Please advise!
Pude solucionar el problema instalando la aplicacion en 3DMax 2016, no asi en la version 2014 que no funciona,no se si habra otra aplicaion para esta version.Gracias
after installing this security tool when i worked in max 2018 it worked successfully.
in my other pc in which max 2015 is installed its not working.
please suggest solution for max 2015 also
There is a code defect in 3ds Max 2015 that prevents the package from being loaded. This defect was fixed in 3ds Max 2015 SP1. The problem was that 2015 did not properly handle SeriesMax values in PackageContents.xml that are greater than 2015.
Please also help for max 2021 as this tool is not working in max 2021 whenever I am trying to save my file it's giving me the option of save as
Guys, as title, installed. But how to know if it run or not?
Do you see the "3ds Max Security Tools" menu item in the Customize main menu?
The same as ALC BETACLEANER, but with some differences.
The most dangerous thing is that this virus can download updates for itself and can be modified!
This virus take next issues:
The script saves itself into hidden files in the:
