    We've become aware of an exploit that may corrupt Autodesk® 3ds Max® software installations and 3ds Max scene files. As a preventative measure, we recommend that all customers who have access to 3ds Max 2015SP1 to 2021, including 3ds Max educational licenses, 3ds Max Indie and 3ds Max Trial versions, download and install the 3ds Max Security Tools application to help detect and resolve potential issues caused by this malicious code.

    Recommended action: download and install the Security Tools application for 3ds Max:

    • Go to the Autodesk App Store and download the Security Tools for Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2021-2015SP1 application.
    • Double-click to run the Autodesk 3ds Max Security Tools MSI file.
    • Choose Install Now.
    • Security Tools for 3ds Max must be kept enabled to automatically detect and clean the known exploits. Security Tools for 3ds Max is enabled by default.
