Your rules to define Riskware, could be missused


Recommended Posts

Riskware, in general, is a detection for items that are not strictly malicious, but pose some sort of risk for the user in another way.

Programs might be termed as “riskware” because they:

  1. Violate the terms of service (ToS) of other software or a user platform.
  2. Block another application or software from being updated and patched.
  3. Could be used as a backdoor for other malware.
  4. Are indicative of the presence of other malware.

I mean at this list

Might be illegal to use in the users’ country.

This should be not considered to say what is riskware. You really apply this point?

Because if it is the case, would support censorship at countries where some software is illegal due not democratic regimes or even  VPN software under this point are riskware
