    Hi Ronald739

    No I didn't. I installed it as the average user would install it. What is Secure Virtual Machines.

    Pete

    PS I just looked at what MCShield is. You might try uninstalling that and see if that makes a difference

    W7-x64 with FF 42.0 Confirmation of the blocked download.
    With IE11 the download + save + installation over build 340 proceeded as expected!

    FF 42.0 sees the download site as a 'reported attack site', removing that check mark bypasses the issue.

    Ditto on the Firefox download. No luck with IE11 or even retrying without VPN.

    What exactly did you mean when you said "No luck with IE11"?
    Do you experience an issue downloading hmpalert3b342.exe (pre-release) with IE11?
    No issue here, downloading hmpalert3b342.exe on Windows 7 x64 IE11.
    (Also no issue downloading hmpalert3b342.exe on Windows Vista x86 IE9)

    The fact that there is (or was?) an issue downloading with Firefox as well as Google Chrome must be because both use Google's Safe Browsing, I suppose? It's crazy that it is (or was?) blocking the download of hmpalert3b342.exe

    That's odd.
    When we are talking about downloading, do we all mean the same thing?
    With "downloading" some mean downloading and saving, where others mean running the installer with downloading.
    I downloaded and saved, I didn't run the hmpalert3b342.exe installer.
    Perhaps others didn't save the installer, but ran it with downloading and that caused the issue? Just thinking about an explanation for the differences we're seeing ...

    Is the bundle with HMP + Emsisoft Anti-malware only for new customer/installs or is it also to renew a licens?

    On Virustotal, Google Safebrowsing is the only URL classification service to flag the URL.

    HMP.A build 342 is not malicious, but has low reputation ranking, because it's brand new.
    But I guess the exploit testing tools triggered Google and Mozilla safe-browsing.

    I already installed build 342, of course no malicious action happened.

    I would never suggest any SurfRight product is malicious but I thought Erik and Mark should know of the issue.

    Cheers!

    "test.hitmanpro.com" apparently is not on the malware-list Mozilla is using (if I understand it correctly): https://www.stopbadware.org/review-search?url=test.hitmanpro.com

    Ok, it gets reported as "unwanted software" which is quite new being included in Google's safebrowsing list: https://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.de/2015/07/more-visible-protection-against.html

    But I'm not sure how to report false-positives on the unwanted software sites list: https://developers.google.com/safe-browsing/developers_guide_v3#ReportingData
