Security threat detected when installing doPDF 8.8.946

Postby rooster3 » Mon Dec 19, 2016 11:50 pm

When I started installing doPDF 8.8.946 (dopdf-full.exe), I received a security alert from WebRoot SecureAnywhere that a threat file named o6bjzju9.exe was trying to be installed (apparently by the doPDF installer) at c:\users\<user>\appdata\local\temp. It also indicated that the threat belonged to a malware group of software called Pua.Downloadmanager.

Because of this threat, I'm not able to install newer versions of doPDF. (The same security alert also occurred with one or two of the immediately previous updates, but I don't necessarily install every update issued. But the time has come that I need to update.) What can be done?

Please make sure you download from our official site:
http://download.dopdf.com/download/setup/dopdf-full.exe

If you get an warning for this too, then try whitelisting it in your AV since that's 100% a false positive.
