I just installed MBAM to check my PC for threats and it found one in the file I least expected - ImgBurn - Setup.exe (I renamed it when I downloaded it on April 2015). :o I'm sure there is no crap in it because I use ImgBurn for quite some time and never had any problems caused by the program but I find it disturbing that many AV programs detect it as a threat called "Open Candy". I even uploaded it to VirusTotal and the detection rate is 24/58. That doesn't mean I'll stop using it.


The funny thing is this detection appears only on the setup file. I just scanned the ImgBurn install folder and it found no threats.

Open Candy isn't a virus.  It's basically nagware that people got so fed up with, AV vendors started flagging it as a PUP, Potentially Unwanted Program.  It just phones home to a server and asks you if you want to install a bunch of extra free crapware you don't want.  It's only contained in older versions of the installer.  I believe it has been removed since there are no more Open Candy servers in use, I think.
