Geniuslink False Positive

Go to solution Solved by Zynthesist,

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

Matt here from Geniuslink - we're an intelligent link management platform that helps affiliate marketers earn more from their affiliate links. We offer an optional JS Snippet for our clients that can be installed on their site, to automatically "convert" raw Amazon links to our proxy format, so that clicks on those links may be reported and affiliated.

Unfortunately, we have been receiving reports from our clients that Malwarebytes is now flagging our CDN as "trojan", which is preventing visitors from reaching their site. See attached screenshot and log messages.

Our service has been in business for over 5 years now, and we have not had a single problem with our CDN being reported for "trojans" before. As such, we believe this to be a false positive and ask that you recategorize our service, to prevent future incidents such as this. These false positives not only hurt our reputation, but cost our clients and our business valuable time and money. 

Please let us know if any additional details are needed. 

Thank you!
