Youtube Best Video Downloader

Recommended Posts

  I installed the Firefox Addon 'YouTube Best Video Downloader' directly from addons.mozilla.org and I'm running Firefox 48.0.2 so it must have been verified & signed. This evening a scheduled Malwarebytes scan picked it up as a PUP. A bit of web searching didn't find anything negative about it, but I'm inclined to trust Malwarebytes so I've disabled it prior to actually removing it. Could someone please tell me why it's classified as a PUP?

Please note that this is not the same addon as Flash Video Downloader mentioned on August 14th.

Thank you for the log/file.

Indeed, to speed things up in getting a false positive fixed, please do include your scan log & affected file(s)

This will be fixed next database update which should be v2016.09.03.01

Thank you for reporting!
