Should have a URL pointing to Emsisoft for their their data, not a graphic
from their web site hosted on your web site which you probably do not have
permission to host or you could have modified.  Possibly both.

Sorry to dissappoint you. The way I came about that image was I noticed
Emsisoft had updated their scanner to Emsisoft Emergency Kit...a portable
offering. After downloading and executing the program, that image popped up
I suppose as a one time ad, and I took a screenshot of it.

I didn't have the URL for the image and I didn't look for it, as I had the
image already to share.

This should go without saying, but a torrent file contains meta data only.
Many freeware/opensource projects are released via torrent. WoW and other
online games use torrent protocol to provide game updates.

Thanks!

    I could send you an image of me looking like Conan, the
barbarian, but wtf, you would probably guess it was a photoshop.

    I have been using Emsisoft Emergency Kit, with PUP detection
turned off. It still flags around 80% false positives. Including a lot
of Nir programs, Cain, and other utilities.

    Be very careful on what you delete.

    PS Where can I submit false positives to Emsisoft ? Will they
honor them ?

    Thanks for the link.
    I went there, almost signed up, then read the policy and the
way they treated the members.
    Cain is NOT malicious. At most it is a PUP, as are most of the
Nirsoft utilities. Someone reported it as a false positive, and got
shut up by a moderator.
    I mean,  WhyTF is a "hacktool" considered malware, if it can't
be remotely controlled ? If it does no harm at all to your PC ?
    Not my kind of scene at all.
    IMHO

Because it may not be malicious but it has the propensity of being used
maliciously and thus HackTool is apropos.

Just when I thought your testing methodology had issues, You'll even use
media puff pieces as official results.. Tell me something Bear, are you
"testing" by scanning a folder full of files you don't know for sure are
infact, malware? LOLz!

Bear appears to be conducting blind testing of malware. Now we can see
just how blind it really is. '=)

    Hey Bear
    My last scan with Emsisoft: :

Files:     472268
Traces:     405133
Cookies:     0
Processes:     30

Found

Files:     49
Traces:     12
Cookies:     0
Processes:     0
Registry keys:     0

Scan end:    29/02/2012 21:07:26
Scan time:    7:23:58

    Of which ONE was a REAL malware. The others were false
positives. False positives are a PITA.

The are not false positives. The software properties are those of malware.
You can easily submit the files to various services if you can't determine
which are false positives or not.

I would much prefer a few false positives over missed malware and one thing
you can be certain about, Emsisoft will catch more of those than any other.
