Re: CNET Download Malware

Try Upload the CNET downloads to Virustotal.com for detections. 

 

Brian Krebs Security did mention about CBS Malware attachment in CNET Downloads.

 

I'm glad to hear that Brian Krebs Security bring up this issues.

 

Also be wary of any malware in Apple Apps Store.

 

There have been some news on these.

 

If you find anything suspicious with downloading from Apple Apps Store please submit to SAS Team.

 

Android are prone to similar problems.
