uTorrent, PUP.Optional.ASK.OPC

I think these might be false as I have been using Malwarebytes for a couple of years now and the files that it's flagging are from 2014.

Hi,

This isn't a false positive. We added detection for this since yesterday, as these installers are bundled installers (bundled with OpenCandy, which is an adware module).

You can ignore detection for this if you want. Just be aware that, when you install or update uTorrent, during install, please read the install-screens carefully, especially when it offers additional programs (or toolbars/searchengines etc etc) and unselect in case you don't want these additional (adware) offers.
