  • Question
    Hans Godard | February 15, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Maya 2023 has a bunch of Security Preferences enabled by default,

    Is this the same thing ?
    Or should we integrate it into our workflow as an add-on ?

  • Chinese Trojan virus
    Oscar Parango | November 08, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Hi there, does the maya security tools get rid of the Trojan Chinese virus, meaning cleaning the file, preventing it to infect your and stops it from duplicating itself? Cheers

    Tankut Erinc | June 21, 2022

    it does prevent it from spreading further by detecting the infected code and stopping it from working at that moment. But it cannot clean it if your scene has external references.

  • Worked !!!!!
    Rishabh Singh | October 10, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Yes it worked for me, I'm using maya 2019.

  • Works well, does it work on newer versions?
    Andy Johns | May 05, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Is this now integrated into Maya as default in 2021 and 2022?

    Hannes Delbeke | June 22, 2021

    maya 2021 doesn't exist 2022 has more options for default plugin behaviour / script execution, not sure yet if this completely replaces security tools. it doesn't show up in the plugins window though
