There Is No Malware In Radiodj

We recently heard reports of antivirus programs flagging up the RadioDJ program files as suspicious.

Kaspersky, Avast, Bitdefender, Norton were all flagging up, deleting and quarantining perfectly safe files.

It annoys us when AV software flags up a perfectly safe program as being infected when it isn’t.

We had the same sort of issues with Kaspersky a while back.

We sent the RadioDJ.exe file to Kaspersky and they came back with this.

Damn You Antivirus Software!!

Yet again I’ve had a user of RadioDJ tell me that Norton Antivirus keeps flagging up the RadioDJ website as having malware.

Well that’s no good is it?

I’ve emailed Marius who owns the website to let him know about the issue and he’s told me that the offending file isn’t on the server anymore.

“So where is Norton getting the idea from that the RadioDJ website is dangerous from?

I’ve blogged before about Antivirus software having issues with RadioDJ.exe

It’s rare I hear of someone not being able to access the main RadioDJ website because their AV software flags it up as suspicious.

“Hey Norton, Avast, AVG, Panda, McAfee, Kaspersky, Clam AV and other antivirus software developers can you do every RadioDJ user in the world a favour? Add and the RadioDJ program folder files to your list of allowed websites/software.

Yet again I find myself having to say.

Not in the program folders, the plugins or the website. It’s getting annoying now!

“People could be missing out on great free radio software because an antivirus database thinks a website/program is infected when it’s clearly NOT”

We wouldn’t have used it for over 5 years if it had any form of Malware/Spyware built into the program. Believe us It’s SAFE!

Naughty Naughty Avg!

I’ve read a few articles on the the internet this morning to do with the free antivirus software AVG.

AVG updates its privacy policy to sell customer browsing and search data.

“It seems the owner of AVG wants to sell user data onto advertisers in order to keep the program free. “Browsing and search history including metadata, internet service provider or mobile network”

Surely that changes the program from Antivirus to SPYWARE?

Think Privacy’s CEO Alexander Hanff called the new measures

“Utterly unethical and a complete abuse of the trust we give our security software”.

We can understand that it costs money to make and support a piece of software but surely there are better ways than going about selling users personal details onto advertisers?

Long since stopped using AVG. It wouldn’t play nicely with SAM Broadcaster way back in 2002/03.

Then I tried Avast which was OK until recently when it started breaking/deleting things.

“These free antivirus solutions always have had a downside. Some of the free solutions can be harmful to your system IMHO!

I hate AV software that takes over your entire PC.

Hey AVG how about you find another solution to the problem of keeping the program free? Instead of trying to sell user data!

Sorry Avast! That’s A No From Us.

For the past 10 years I’ve championed AVAST as an antivirus solution, It used to sit running in the background keeping you quietly protected.

Recent versions however seem to want to take over the files on the computer and delete them if it “thinks” they are suspicious.

NO NO NO! I don’t want an antivirus program telling me what files are safe on my PC

I want to be able to decide that for myself TYVM!

We’re going back to Kaspersky seeing as my partner gets a licence for it through his bank.

Cheerio Avast it was nice knowing you….. until you started fucking RadioDJ users about!

There’s no malware in RadioDJ you MUPPETS!
