F-Secure blocks Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) for no reason. Why?
In fact, it even blocks me downloading LOIC directly from Sourceforge.net where it is VERIFIED VIRUS-FREE. Here: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
What is the reason for this? LOIC is a perfectly valid network pentesting tool. For some bizarre reason F-Secure even blocks the download when I turn off all its security features and the browser plugin. Can someone at F-Secure please explain the reasoning behind this?
This means I will have to completely uninstall F-Secure to use LOIC. Which is ridiculous. None of my old AV had any problems with LOIC. Again LOIC is a perfectly valid network testing tool, and there is no reason whatsoever that it should be blocked by any AV. Please, good people of F-Secure, allow people to use LOIC without having to completely uninstall FS.
This is a major dealbreaker. If I have to switch to a better AV for this I will, but I'd rather use FS since its subscription is bundled for free with my ISP. If you want, you can examine the source code for LOIC directly at sourceforge.net if you want to verify first-hand that it's completely clean. Because it is.
