[Solved] Lollipop Malware

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Even i choose not to install the offered thingies during setup, i still got a lollipop.exe after the install. As you know, this is a malware.

 

I am not against anyone making money with his free software but at least put a warning info and stay away from shady distribution methods.

The installer is just an experiment. Fortunately I do provide the 7z file where you don't have to install Win Toolkit at all.

 

Thanks for the info though. Made a note of it :)

 

UPDATE 1: Reported it. I also asked if it can only show specific software such as Chrome, Firefox, CrapCleaner, etc..

UPDATE 2: They've seen the message but no reply as of yet.

I got a response:

 

Thanks for letting me know! its probably a tech problem, i will immediately remove this offer.

 

Thank you for the quick answer and info. Really, i appreciate it.

 

Let's hope they will remove it.

@Liam, Does using the installer offer any advantage, for either you or the user, over the 7z files?  I'm curious why you decided to offer the installer, besides experimenting with how it works.

 

Cheers and Regards

The only advantage is that I get paid when someone installs an offer. Apart from that, it's pointless and I don't see myself keeping it even if I do get paid. If i'm completely honest, I hate the software it offers and if I could have my own way it would offer useful programs such as Chrome, Firefox, CrapCleaner, Java, useful stuff. So that's the big reason that I wont end up keeping it.

 

It offers to install toolbars and I HATE toolbars with a passion. The only reason it's still up is because I said to someone that I would try it. If you have some spare time please, and i mean PLEASE search the internet for installers that DO offer chrome, etc..

      ...since the home server(?) at http://testing.wintoolkit.co.uk/ is down, or acting weird, quite often. And it again. And it appears that no one else mirrors your 0.56MB application anywhere, ever. Currently, all your links are broken, and I've been hunting all over the internet for the last three hours for a way to find it. In fact, this is a big enough issue that the fourth of four Google results for "2.0.5860.25216.7z" is a pretty damn convincing, and extremely nasty malware trap: http://solari.victus-rpg.com/showthread.php?tid=84314 . I just spent the last 45 minutes wrestling control of my computer back from that beast. The only other v2.x one can find on the internet is at http://www.datafilehost.com/d/2b73ce8b, which was uploaded in another wincert.net thread a few months back when a similar thing was happening, but it is the older 2.0.5651.42757, which no longer runs due to a built-in expiration date.
      So, yeah. A mirror would be good; and in the mean time, anyone have a copy of 2.0.5860.25216.7z laying around?
      Thanks, your friend,
      Geoff (or, I guess, "f483755" today)

      Hi!
      Somehow WinToolkit must have been the victim of a malware/adware infection. I just downloaded the latest version, and alle the www links inside the program (like those in the "Downloads" menu) lead to ad-infected pages, not to the ones they should.
       
      Regards,

      I did install this program, Win Toolkit 1.4.1.27, and it set off my anti virus program, in fact it is preventing me from installing it. does this thing have malware or spyware in it?
      thanks
