False Positive: Webpaged Blocked

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

When we try to download the software "StormAlertsSetup: from 'i.allfreeapps.net/inst/cdn/StormAlerts/StormAlertsSetup.exe', Ad-Aware version 11 blocks the access to this site.

 

It says " Ad-Aware" has deemed this page as Dangerous and has blocked the access to this site.

 

The software does not contain any malicious code or perform any malicious activity. Request you to re-asses this detection.

Hi Technware,

 

Sorry, I don't agree with you.

As you can see on https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/59308603126642fa8ead32f82b8f7391e0a07e4afb5d96d4d8017b0caaf01843/analysis/ there are several companies that classifies the web site as bad.

This is the report of another file that can be downloaded from i.allfreeapps.net: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/a51b640ce431f38bf16ae7ad5b3331f3c8a976b00acea9e7d0db8bf5ac246e8d/analysis/1399877580/

As you can see several antivirus programs classifies the file as malicious (riskware/PUP/adware) and therefore the web site should be blocked by Ad-Aware.

 

allfreeapps.net is registered anonymously, which is a bad sign: http://whois.domaintools.com/allfreeapps.net

 

But I'll ask the Malware Lab team if they have anything to add.
