PUP.Optional.OpenCandy False Positives


Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes has detected this in two legitimate programs  GOM Player and Daemon Tools. I had installed this and i didnot encounter any adware. Both files has downloaded from their legitimate sites,so please fix this.

Both are using the OpenCandy stub.


Attaching some screenshots of the Gomplayer:








In this case, as you can see in the screenshot, it prechecks and recommends you to install Conduits Search Protect which is in no way related with Gomplayer itself, but additional adware (which Conduits search protect is)


At *any* time, since the Opencandy stub is embedded, it can connect to the servers during install in order to include additional bundles, so these bundles might always change.
