false pos., Adwcleaner (POLegacy) - related to an IP from hide.me-VPN


Recommended Posts

adwcleaner (v7.2.0.0) running on win7 and 8.1, nagged on following 'PUP.Optional.Legacy':

PUP.Optional.Legacy             HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{76044BAA-96EA-4BAE-8915-E7CCE2B7646B}|NameServer - "95.211.171.161"
PUP.Optional.Legacy             HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{76044BAA-96EA-4BAE-8915-E7CCE2B7646B}|NameServer - "95.211.171.160"

these IPs are Leaseweb and part of VPN-hide.me (NL), since years! No reason - at all, to mention it as suspect in adwcleaner!

=> that's nonsense!

other IPs from hide.me-NL weren't mention from this 'adwcleaner', only range "95.211."...

It has been fixed in a subsequent database update - you should have got the update automatically, do you confirm?

Hi, (late reply, sorry)

no fixing recognizable (actual scan AdwCleaner 7.2.1.0):

***** [ Registry ] *****

PUP.Optional.Legacy             HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{851FC484-4221-459A-B8BE-7A3FB32BD8E9}|NameServer - "95.211.101.197"
PUP.Optional.Legacy             HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{851FC484-4221-459A-B8BE-7A3FB32BD8E9}|NameServer - "95.211.101.196"

***** [ Chromium (and derivatives) ] ***** (...)

 

=> can't confirm! (actual log attached)

Sorry, there was an issue on our side, it's ok now.

sorry - that's wrong again!

just using hide.me-VPNClient 1.3.5 with connection NL-free - and Adwcleaner is moaning the same. No change at all.

and it's every time only IP-range "95.211. ...", if another IP (of NL) is chosen by hide.me-Client, the log of adwcleaner is 0 ("Detected: 0").

I'll give you (third time) the relevant log attached.
