OS X/InstallCore on MacUpdate installs?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here and I don't know if this is the right place to post this :

I downloaded an app named Lazesoft Mac Data Recovery on the Macupdate site (BTW I might have clicked on "install").

When I opened the DMG, VirusBarred warned of a malware detected (OS X/InstallCore) on the "pulpitarian" file (Macupdateinstaller>Macupdate Installer.app>Contents>MacOs>pulpitarian)

I posted a comment on the app page on Macupdate and it was deleted.

I also sent a message to the developer who replied that they "had not added the Apple's Code Signing on their program and, maybe, this (was) the reason why VirusBarrier warned of a malware".


Is MacUpdate really doing this?
