KC Softwares SUMo / FALSE POSITIVE


Recommended Posts

ESET Internet Security is reporting

hxxp://www.kcsoftwares.com/files/sumo.exe

as a potentially dangerous URL (see attached screenshot from french version)

This is a false positive. No problem report on same installer under a different name.

While SUMo used to contain optionnal sponsors in the past it's now 100% from any third party, and therefore 100% malware/adware-free.

Would you please fix the database asap ? (or tell me in PM what i need to change on server side)

I never find your tools useful.
That software updater can only find the available updates for famous tools! I found a Chinese software updater that can even show you the available beta versions of software like Sandboxie:D do you understand?also for free!

Whats this? I use Sumo and it tends to find a wide range of stuff not just the main stuff and there is an option for beta versions. Although it does not tell you its beta on the program you have to click it to see.

You have to be careful though especially with devices because it may tell you that there is an update for something e.g. you have version 3 of a printer software and version 4 is out but 4 is for newer models. 

It is important to note Sumo uses its users data basically its user generated. That is how it shows you there is an update. I believe so many people have to be on a version before it detects it. This means if no other users use a specific program it will not be able to alert you to updates

Any chance to get it whitelisted by ESET ?
