Not too sure what to make of this one, folks. I'm on Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 x64, running Microsoft Security Essentials as my antivirus. Tried downloading EAC both from the main and backup sources, and got this warning in both cases:Anyone else seeing this? Any ideas?ThanksLJ
Checked on my home laptop: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32-bit with NOD32, which also immediately quarantined the download as suggested by tpijag's link.As much as I like EAC, I'm gonna have to demand that the developer do something about this. Being flagged by 2 AV programs - especially NOD32, with it's stellar reputation - is a huge problem IMO.dBPowerAmp anyone?
...\eac-0.99pb5\$TEMP\eBay_shortcuts_1026.exe (Adware.ADON) -> No action taken.
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ("MBAM") also detects it after unpacking the setup file, with this:Quote...\eac-0.99pb5\$TEMP\eBay_shortcuts_1026.exe (Adware.ADON) -> No action taken.These little money making add-ons get tons of software tagged as malware, however both Avast and a-squared Free don't detect anything.
Avast, along with Malwarebytes and MSE, certainly flagged EAC for me. I realize its the e-bay shortcuts adware (MSE reports it as a named trojan though, much more serious than adware) causing the issue. I think it is a very bad idea to recommend a software as highly as hydrogenaudio does that contains problem files like this. I doubt any of my friends that I have recommended EAC to did anything other than install it with the default options.. making their infections my fault which I now get to deal with.
Hydrogenaudio should have a prominent warning about this issue in the wiki page. I doubt any amount of complaints to the author will change anything.
Today I released 0.99 prebeta 4 ...... I have included a desktop and quick launch bar icon in the installer which link to eBay. As the advertisements on the homepage dropped by a great amount over the last year, I decided to try to go this way. I hope that you can understand my decision! Anyway, the icons are created only on the installation of EAC and their installation can be easily prevented by deselecting the eBay component within the EAC installer. The EAC application itself is still completely free from advertisement or spyware (and will be)!I hope that you will like the new version nevertheless!
I don't care about this since it's rather obvious that I don't need anything related to Ebay to be installed with EAC and can opt-out.
