False positive detection for Installmonetizer website<Previous Thread lost in the downtime>


Recommended Posts

Hi,

When we open www.installmonetizer.com then malware bytes blocks this site.

The site has been checked on other antivirus and no threat has been detected by them.

Please re-examine the detection.

I reported this issue 2 days back and seems as if my post got deleted in the recent downtime.

Thanks

Sameer

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the update.

We Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the update.

I went through the content available on internet for the Adware classification and based on the information gathered i created a explanation for the possible reason why Malware byte should not detect them as Adware. I have marked my response inline in Red

"The installers offered by my clients are often used to bundle all kind of application installers

with questionable 'offers', sometimes without discretion from authors of

original application." Our client always take approval from the author of the original application. More-soever they also take approval from the users who are downloading and installing the application. All this information is clearly stated in their Privacy policy document.

'Offers' presented are usually some kind of browser plugins and toolbar, and often they are themselves can be considered Adware.

There are cases where during setup process downloading of main application permanently fails, but the 'offers' modules are downloaded and installed

successfully. Our Client has got good reputation in the market and they are one of the trusted brands in the market. Every product is released after a extensive testing and QA rounds. They make sure that the offering is not a pain to end user instead is a add on which makes their work easier.

If user is aware of and accepts any potential risks, they may elect to use installer at their own discretion. Yes, But a detection from Malware one of a biggest player in the market is a cause of suspicion for the end user. This is resulting in a big business loss to our client.

Please do let me know if you require any further information. Also, Please suggest if we need to change any module in order to get a clean certificate from your side.

Thanks

Sameer
