Is CDex 2.15 detection a false positive?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to update to CDex 2.15 (currently using 2.05) from the https://cdex.mu/ website and I keep getting this error message when I try to run the installer.

Is this a false-positive? The installer is included in the attached zip.

Hi,

This isn't a false positive. In a meanwhile, we have updated our detection as Adware.Fusioncore, this since it uses the fusioncore installwrapper that is bundled with other software (depends on geolocation).

Please note, the program itself is fine to have. We only detect the installer. I'm quite sure other AVs would detect the same.

So if you want to use/install this program, you can temporary disable Malwarebytes. During install, please read the install-screens carefully, so you don't end up with installing other software you don't need.

Good to know. Thanks! I temporarily disabled Malware detection, launched the installer, then re-enabled it before completing the install and doing so allowed the install to finish, but a DLL was blocked. I believe it was something Fusioncore related. Whatever the case, I did not get any third-party programs bundled with the installer. I guess the DLL being removed prevented them from showing up. I have checked my system too, and nothing is present.
