    I just booted the laptop a short time ago, and got two popups... I allowed the VS one, and for the WSA one, I decided to remove from quarantine.

    Hi Tarnak
    May I ask why you are running Panda Security along with Webroot? You surely don't need both.

    I like trying out different software...so, just another layer. And, besides I see no adverse effects on my computer.

    Looks like it comes with some unwanted Adware PUA/PUP so can you post the MD5 hash from the scan log that shows that detection?

    TIA,

    Daniel

    Running the setup file exe, following directions, I then got another WSA alert, which I also removed from quarantine.

    These might be the lines that you are after:

    I don't see any toolbar. So, I don't know in which browser it would appear.

    Dan, I have just updated to Opera - 42.0.2393.517 - Restart Opera to update to version 43.0.2442.806. I think this browser is not used by Panda for gathering information. So, I am not to worried.

    Then you will have set to allow if it's detected again.

    Why would I want to allow? I though the objective was not to allow... Light bulb moment!

    Because this is in the Webroot Thread I'm posting the VT detection of this same MD5: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/thr...-posting-of-jotti-virus-total-results.180057/

    These might be the lines that you are after:

    [E] c:\users\owner\appdata\local\temp\7zs0c346f10\program files\panda security\panda cloud antivirus\tools\pandasecuritytb.exe [MD5: C2B27CA055A95CD8580D43454DB3144F] [Flags: 10081100.10609]

    [E] c:\windows\temp\7zs8729f191\program files\panda security\panda cloud antivirus\tools\pandasecuritytb.exe [MD5: C2B27CA055A95CD8580D43454DB3144F] [Flags: 10081100.10609]

    [E] c:\program files (x86)\panda security\panda security protection\tools\pandasecuritytb.exe [MD5: C2B27CA055A95CD8580D43454DB3144F] [Flags: 10081100.10609]


    ~ Removed VirusTotal Results as per Policy ~

    So it's detected by many!

    I don't know about the many, but I have an additional line:

    [E] c:\program files (x86)\pandasecuritytb\pandasecuritydx.dll [MD5: 8956A3BDB242BF721160EFA3DA72D789] [Flags: 00081100.10909]

    P.S. I am just ticked off, that by allowing the update in Panda, the trial version of Panda Global Protection 2016 that I have on my Surface Book, and which still had another 30 days or so to run, has now been has downgraded to just the Panda AV free version.

    Well it has Unwanted Adware and as I said you could Allow if you wanted to keep it. You can check other files or MD5's here: http://snup.webrootcloudav.com/SkyStoreFileUploader/upload.aspx

    Thanks, Dan ...for the additional information on that extra line. :) I'll try to remember about that link for future detections, and information.

    Daniel, I assume that the "new" technology is only being incorporated into the business/corporate side of Webroot at present :doubt:
    Are there any plans to push some of it to the consumer versions that we use?

    New test of WSA by MRG. Note: this is a Webroot sponsored test.

    https://www.mrg-effitas.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Webroot_AMTSO_report.pdf

    While perhaps interesting it's a pity that they didn't give a breakdown of detections / infections for each category of malware so that we could see if there was a weakness in a particular category (ie: ransomware) or if the missed samples were spread across all categories. As it is it doesn't really tell us a lot.
