Serious malware infection from Camstudio installer
Today I received a detailed malware report associated with the "adware" which accompanied the new Camstudio installer.
I've never been a fan of these adware packages, mainly because the people who run them depend for their livelihood on deception, and that makes them inherently untrustworthy. Anyone who relies on dishonesty to make a sale can never be trusted to tell the truth.
However when the software in question triggers not only my antivirus software, but also alarms from our security gateway, that's far beyond adware.
There's no question about the cause of this alert, I've got detailed logs, and it's 100% certain that the Camstudio installer installed malware on one of my computers.
I'm deeply disturbed and disappointed that it's come to this. This can only damage the reputation of this project and everyone involved.
