DriverHub detected as not a virus?


Why is detected like a potential ilicit software used criminals?
I think is one of the best Drivers updaters (If is not the best!) But since time a go is detected like a virus and have a lot of problems.

I think Kaspersky check the company and make an alliance with DriverHub if is a good company boot wins!!!

Hello Ricardo,
Thanks for posting back.
This Kaspersky blog provides information about "Riskware" & "Adware"
https://www.kaspersky.com/blog/not-a-virus/18015/

Which is the detection being reported:

Nombre del objeto
not-a-virus:Heur:Downloader.Win32.RostDown.gen
Tipo de objeto
Software licito que los criminales pueden usar para danar su equipo o sus datos personales.

Name of the object
not-a-virus: Heur: Downloader.Win32.RostDown.gen
Type of object
Legal software that criminals can use to damage their equipment or personal data.



Kaspersky is providing a "warning" that this product "may", has the potential to be misused (by criminals).

Thanks!
If is trusted why then is marked like a risk software? Downloader.Win32.RostDown.gen

And if ytou install the software Kaspersky still signal the software

Hello Ricardo,
a) If is trusted why is it marked like a risk software? Because the detected object has the potential to be misused.

b) If (I) install the software Kaspersky still signals the software - yes, because, the software may be misused.

Kaspersky is "helping" keep the owner of the computer informed.

Adware or riskware has been detected. What is the next step?

Kaspersky Internet Security shows detection notifications for such applications so that you know that they are installed on your computer. It is possible that you installed them on purpose: As we said, riskware may be very useful. In that case, there is no reason to worry.
It is also possible that another “not-a-virus” has crawled into your computer without your noticing it. In that case, you need to know if the application is related to either riskware or adware. That is why users are given the chance to choose what to do with the application. If you did not install it, you should probably delete it.

Thanks!
I want Kaspersky check the software and say is ok to install😎

Downloading DrvHub from https://www.drvhub.net/ does not activate Kaspersky Web AntiVirus detection.

Hello Ricardo,
Is there are reason you're downloading from:
https://www.az-partners.net/apps/driver-hub/download?ap=28
& not from:
https://www.drvhub.net/
?
Please do let us know?
Thanks!
Maybe the web page is the site in spanish (AZpartners) and the web page driverhub, still don't let me install the software and try other website and is deleted?

You try to use 2 different URLs:

https://www.az-partners.net/apps/driver-hub-download?ap=28 - wrong URL (404 error).
https://www.az-partners.net/apps/driver-hub/download?ap=28 - right URL.
And this is why you can not download using provided link.

Drvhub.net just transferring downloads to az-partners domains as like many other sites are downloading content from amazon servers or something like this.

As for the DriverHub - it is not a virus/malware. It is compatible with all industry rules. All the links and URLs listed on official site are legit as you can think.
