ImgBurn 2.5.7 - Kaspersky Danger Rating 100

Recommended Posts

Long time user of this software, but first time using ImgBurn 2.5.7, just got this warning from Kaspersky:

I should mention that I have just installed lots of other software, VLC, Handbrake, etc, without any problems.

 

I did not get any UAC prompt for ImgBurn, just the above warning from Kaspersky.

 

Admin, I chose to cancel the install, feel free to email me for more info. I'll try to look back here if I get time.

 

 

Thanks.

I'm not really sure how this is a 'bug' ?

 

Just click the 'Yes, I trust' option.

 

Your AV program is simply warning you because the installer (and app) aren't digitally signed.

I was unsure of posting as a bug, however, I have never encountered this before with any of the previous ImgBurn installers, nor have I encountered this with any other freeware that is not digitally signed, so I thought perhaps it was a bug in the installer or the certificate, that was my reasoning :unknown:

 

If there is no bug and this is a false positive it may be worth you registering on the developer White List:

Well assuming the MD5 of the file you downloaded matches the one displayed on the 'Download' page, it should be safe.

 

I don't know what your AV uses as a basis for its 'danger rate'... but if the installer is getting 100/100, I guess it must be ticking all the boxes!

 

No doubt you becoming a member of their security network would help in this situation. It would see that lots of other people have downloaded / installed the app and that it's safe.
