Antivirus Reporting Answers

What is the antivirus report you produce?
Our antivirus reporting is the feature that we offer for our users: programs authors and web site visitors. We publish the report in the program description, so, the visitors can see is this program clean to be downloaded and installed. Also it's useful for the authors because they can refer to this report to inform the visitors that they care for them and their software is clean.

Why do you send notification to the program author? Is this SPAM?
Of course it's not a SPAM. We send only the message for author one time after the program was checked.

Why should we believe your report?
Of course you shouldn't, and no one can oblige you to do this. But we believe our antivirus software and try to share an information with you.

What kind of antivirus software do you use for the checking?
Nowadays we use Dr.Web. But we'd like to use more ones to have more complex analyzing.

How often do you check program files?
When the size or date of program file is changed. We check this periodically.

May I use your informer on my web site?
Of course you may. We produced this report for you and potential users of your program.

Why do you say in your report that my software is infected? I am not a wrecker!
Of course you are not. But the antivirus software that we use shows another information. We hope your software is infected not by intention. There a lot of situations when author has the infected computer and puts viruses from his computer to the program for distribution without any knowledge about this. Check your computer please some clever antivirus, cure this, produce the new program distribution and upload this to your web server again. The antivirus software review that we would suggest you is possible to read by following this link.

My software is reported as infected. How can I correct this situation?
As we said in the previous article you need to get some antivirus program (you may use our antivirus software review), disinfect your software, create new distribution and upload that to your web server. Our bot checks files periodically. So, it will define at least the file date changing and check that for viruses again. If your program will be clean of any deprecated inclusion this will be reported.
