Hi, it's a bit too late now, Maelstrom has been uninstalled and Bit Defender has run several complete scans since then because as you can imagine after having had so many threats I was in paranoid mode for a few days. Seems the system is clean now. I may be willing to reinstall Maelstrom to see how Bit Defender reacts, but I had another problem with Maelstrom: every time I would try to set up a proxy (I'm using Torguard), using the Maelstrom settings, I could not stream any magnet, Maelstrom would connect to anything, which is kind of defeating the purpose of Maelstrom.
Hello, I have installed Malestrom about 2 weeks ago. I had Windows Defender detecting several malwares and trojan. Since I had also installed other softwares at about the same time I couldn't find out exactly where was the weakness, but I could see Chrome was the vector. So I made Firefox my main browser and installed Bit Defender. This morning Bit Defender found a plethora of threats coming from Maelstrom, it desinfected the .exe and .lnk and more than 30 files in the subfolders C:\users\myaccount\appdata\local\maelstrom\user data and then: - extension state - local extension state - sync app settings - history provider cache - evwhitelist - managed extension settings - file system - default\bookmarks I can send the zip of this \user data folder to the dev team. So, is Maelstrom considered a virus or is it an entry door to virus and trojan as soon as we start using it? Thanks,
