There's a trojan in your installer

Fri Aug 24, 2018 10:36 am

I always scan installers before I install.
So I updated ClamWin antivirus signatures, and scanned the download, and lo and behold:

Everyone needs to be careful about viruses, trojans and malaware, but nobody needs to be more careful than software distributors. For virus makers and hackers, gaining control of a computer in a sofware distribution house is the highest trophy; if they manage to install a trojan in your network, from then on they can inject their malaware into your public binaries. You need to run not just one antivirus a day, but maybe 5 of them, and NEVER allow your people to bring USB sticks from their homes, or any such thing. And you can't allow your employees to install software in their machines, of course. Etceteras...

Hello DanW58,

The official version of Bandicam (https://www.bandicam.com/downloads/) is safe and doesn't have any viruses.

The false positive can happen because some parts of the Bandicam source code are virtualized to protect against reverse engineering and cracking.

Please see the results of scanning by virustotal.

Please, turn off the real time scan of ClamWin and try installing the latest version again.

Thank you.

Thanks for the reply. But I'm going to shoot an email to the ClamWin guys, see what they say; --I'm a paranoid type, and I believe it's kept me alive... ;-)

Unfortunately, we don't have a good solution for this issue on our side.

We will contact the anti-virus company again.
