Avira report Foxit Reader and Foobar2000 as malware
Foxit is a kind of malware, Avira is right
LOL ASK toolbar
german security haha
go with spanish panda cloud or chechs .....avast!
If you read the warnings, it says there's suspicious code in the websites, not that these applications are malware.
You can report it to Avira and let them have a look. Nowadays legitimate sites are being pwned on a regular basis. According to that avast study, 90% of the sites serving up malware are not pr0n, warez, etc. Basically there's no such thing as a "safe surfer" anymore.
Absolutely true. I once got infected by visiting downloadsquad because one of the ads appearing on the site was malicious.
I see, now I am waiting for reply from Avira
I cannot reproduce either of these detections.Are you heuristic settings on high
Off topic but thats what I don't like about almost all AVs. High heuristics? whats that supposed to mean? doesn't the company have programmers intelligent enough to figure out whats the best? Before anyone says 'thats what default settings are for' let me ask - why give the choice then? How am I supposed to know whats best for my surfing habits? I employ apps to make decisions for me. If I get infected theres always the excuse - did you have that particular threat category checked? did you have that level of sensitivity set up? Prevx takes this crap to another level altogether. End of rant.
That means a detection rate of 120 % including 20 % false positives
All guard heuristic set to HIGH for more detection rate but more FP...
