In verband met die virusscannermelding: dat komt door OpenCandy dat vervat zit in de installer. OpenCandy verandert de zoekrobot, verandert de homepage, installeert BHOs en 'telefoneert' constant naar huis.
Sommige AV bedrijven zien dit als adware, anderen als malware. Ik ben die laatste mening toegedaan en raad CDex af.
Op Wikipedia schrijft men dit:
The recent reincarnation of CDex has seen a number of sponsored programs being automatically selected during installation with little information about their nature. Scan results suggest there may be a substantial risk to any system these are installed on along with the source code no longer being publicly accessible, preventing independent code review.
This project should be considered as exploited by the new maintainer and should not be trusted. This project should not be trusted or installed on your machine. As the new maintainer has taken over new releases have been pushed out showing activity, the support links are broken, the ticketing system does not exist and is a broken link, there are no contact details or method to interact with the developer and the installer is installing adware without any notifications. The new maintainer has exploited the strong reputation and work of the project and turned it into mechanism to profit. Updates are being made to the application, including the installer with hidden software being installed.
