FP on for downloads.pdf-xchange.com

Recommended Posts


I hope you can help us.  We have found that the MalwareBytes Add-In for Firefox is giving a false positive report to users who are downloading our software from hxxps://www.tracker-software.com/product/downloads

I have searched for other reports in this forum and found none.    I've read and followed these:

  • hxxps://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/20806-important-please-read-before-reporting-a-false-positive/
  • hxxps://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/21076-info-malicious-website-blocking/

The URL and IP address belong to CacheFly (hxxps://www.cachefly.com/) who provide a CDN for our product delivery.  They say they have had no other similar reports to date.

The URL is currently resolving to
