Loaris Trojan remover found Malware on Bitcomet installation exe file


Recommended Posts


I've download Bitcomet v 1.42 setup file and installed. Operation seems OK

But when I scan my computer with Loaris Trojan remover it reports an Adware on

Bitcomet setup.exe.

I do not known any harm or effect to my programs or my computer.

Please commend.

All of the major anti virus scanners detect it as clean, what your AV detected is "InstallCore", an app that allows BitComet to bundle things like the Yahoo toolbar which can easily be declined during install. Little things like that are what keeps the lights on here and this is not a virus or any other type of threat. BitComet is digitally signed and all the contents are provided for it to be certified as safe, but many small anti virus scanners don't do their homework and label any app that uses this technology as a false positive.

By the way, I recommend reverting to 1.41 until an unrelated bug is fixed in 1.42
