Website download.piriform.com seen as malicious. False positive?

While trying to download the latest CCleaner F-Secure marks download.piriform.com/ccsetup528.exe as malicious.

False positive I presume.

 

Anyone?

Re: Website download.piriform.com seen as malicious. False positive?

Hello,

 


Sorry for my reply (I also F-Secure user).

 

With such situations usually helpful transfer-URL to F-Secure SAS:

https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/submit-a-sample#sample-url

 

They able to re-rate/do response about situtation. With work days it can to take about day/two days.

=====================

 

With my situation - I also able to get block-page for this certain URL (as harmful/malicious-rated website).

But looks like that not all piriform (download.) resources/URLs marked as harmful.

 

 

Spoiler

At least: other solutions available; and previous CCleaner build also available by related URL.


But fresh build installer (your URL) and (at least - Pro trial installer also) blocked as harmful page.

 

Also I using CCleaner PRO (where available autoupdate feature) - so it will install fresh build (F-Secure do not trigger something and do not prevent downloading).

 

I think maybe detection (f/p blocking page as malicious) can be about bundle for first-try experience with Piriform/CCLeaner installer (previously it was with Google Chrome suggestion or/and plugins/addons for Chrome) - how I can to understand this is still can be there.

If I normally remember - time to time Piriform-downloading-resource marked as malicious page under F-Secure Security Cloud by somewhat reasons. Transferring URL to F-Secure SAS most likely helpful step.

 

 

 

Sorry for my reply.

 

Thanks.
