rvail317 Posted April 5, 2016 Report Share Posted April 5, 2016 Is the author of BitTorrent (Bram Cohen?) aware of the problems when installing BitTorrent 7.9.6 Build 42095 (latest free version + also several recent versions)? Specifically: Avira AV detects "PUA (OpenCandy)/Cloud" and prevents the program installer to properly function. Comment: inclusion of adware in "free" software is considered to be OK/fine, as long as it doesn't halt proper installation, while an active AV program is also present & in operation. Note: this problematic software was downloaded directly from the bittorrent.com web site, so you can't go blaming MajorGeeks.com for the malware. Thanks. P.S. You may want to say: "Just disable real-time AV detection, temporarily". But no, that solution is contrary to any kind of existing "community standard" for Windows software.
