And if I did ? Your possible way of thinking, is not the way i suppose. And answering your last question, it usually is a very important MUST to (in) consider (consideration) the fact by seeing all the pieces as a WHOLE, and applying what SOME (not ALL) relevant Sites DO say. In retrieving MW it helps alot. No Researcher would deny that. BELIEVE me.
Sorry, i forgot something to read about:
And if i should remember good, VT made a change to TM on their Collaboration-MW-Search-Engine in connection to TM, a few days ago.
I asked 3 questions. Did you answer them ? No.
Instead you question my questions and provide a riddle.
The malware world abounds with False Positives and grey area files.
Were the WinRAR and 7zip installers malware that you posted about ? No.
Were they EASY to determine their legitimacy ? Yes.
Is it possible that a legitimate installer could be repackaged with malware ? Yes, I have seen this so many times it isn't funny. But that wasn't the case. I replied back to your posts but you didn't even bat an eye with a reply.
Like rumours, you don't spread False Positives as if they were indeed malware. You test the URLs and files and make a determination based upon your own findings and facts. Then you post them.
Frankly, after testing numerous URLs and files you have posted, I find what you post to be less than reliable.
