Mirror 1 compromised with malware

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've tried to download ImgBurn from the first mirror provided by the official installation and got infected by an incredibly annoying piece of malware.

It installs a bunch of stuff like a fake Firefox in a few different directories within AppData, which launches on startup. It also has another payload which closes every window and program until it finally hangs the system, forcing me to hard reset it.

Both AVG and Malwarebytes fail to detect anything, So far I've deleted the fake 'Firefox' and disabled any suspicious program from launching on startup but I'm there's no guarantee this won't cause more headaches in the future.

Looking through the forums, it seems I'm not the only one affected by this, which is rather disappointing because the developers haven't take any measures to prevent that from occuring again.

It is a damn shame, because ImgBurn was the only program which allowed me to create an .iso file from a severely scratched DVD without any major hassle.

Use mirror 7, and there's plenty of methods to disable the offers

I picked the option to download without an installer from the mirror itself. It didn't show any ads, though.
