Video to Flash Converter through giveawayoftheday website


Recommended Posts

I read the rules for submission to this area but I could not follow them I'm sorry because this problem is not picked up through a scan, only when trying to run the setup program enclosed within the zip file. It is the current(as of today, as there is generally a new one each day and the ones before that expire if not installed within the one day promotion period) free program promotion available at www.giveawayoftheday.com

I have been using this site for both its programs and usually weekend game offers and as they claim have never found malware in any of their promotions.

However I ran the zip file through virustotal to back this up and this is its conclusion:


Therefore I report this as a false positive and enclose the mentioned zip file(hopefully this is not against any site rules, if so I apologize in advance), so you can inspect its contents further.

Adware.SearchIt99, was caught being distributed with AD-Bundled Flash games install openly shared on the Gnutella network(P2P).The file that is being flagged is a tempory install file whic drops in <temps> but then is deleted after install is complete.

Has blocking this file prevented you from getting your free games or just blocked the installation of the SearchIt99 BHO ?

I ignored the warning to install it(since I assumed it was a false positive and only had a small amount of time to install it) and I haven't had problems like this with other promotions from the site. So if I'm still a bit unclear if it's just the temporary file that was the issue if having installed it means it also installed that ad-ware or not?
