uTorrent Being Marked by Windows Defender and others as Malware

uTorrent is a cross-platform download software, supporting the magnetic, BT and other expansion protocols, popular in the number of users in foreign countries, but the current situation is more embarrassing. For it is Flagged by Windows Defender, which is the default anti-virus app in Microsoft Windows PC, and other anti-virus apps.

If you’re a big fan of torrent downloader, then there is a very good chance that you are making use of the popular client uTorrent, and if you’re a Windows user, then you may also have noticed that Windows Defender started to show concerns surrounding the app of late.

So far, Microsoft’s Windows Defender has marked the uTorrent client as a potential threat. What’s worse, several other antivirus software are also beginning to mark the latest version of uTorrent as malware.

uTorrent has been marked as malware by anti-virus apps

Multiple users are reporting that Windows has begun to flag uTorrent as “Potentially Unwanted Software,” something that developer BitTorrent Inc says is nothing more than a false positive. However, the company has removed the suspect release from its servers at the time of writing, meaning anyone using the app should use a different release – one which Windows Defender seemingly has no issue with.

With uTorrent generally being the torrent app of choice for millions of users around the globe, the suggestion that a release is carrying more than just a torrent downloader is one that will prove troublesome to a fair few people.

Interestingly, it is not just Windows Defender that has started to complain about uTorrent either, with a number of anti-virus applications also marking the torrent client as a potential threat when picked up via a scan.

No reason found why it being flagged

By now, the Company BitTorrent has received the reports and new version of uTorrent has been dropped off from the downloader page, obviously, the official has not found out any reason why Windows Defender is blocking their product.

From now on, the blocking has nothing to do with the problem of bundled packages, BitTorrent claims that the Software conforms to Google and the Clean Software Alliance standard.

“We believe that this passive flag changed to active just hours ago with the Windows patch Tuesday update, when a small percent of users started getting an explicit block,” BitTorrent Inc told TorrentFreak.

We had three uTorrent executables being served from our site. Two were going to 95% of our users and were not part of the Windows block. The third, which was going to 5% of users, was part of the Windows block. We stopped shipping that and confirmed we are no longer seeing any blocks.

The reasons for this change are unknown, but everything points to a specific version of uTorrent has served a small number of users.

BitTorrent, owner of uTorrent, claims that this could be a potential false alarm after making sure that the version that had problems was removed. No, this new warning may mean that the attitude towards uTorrent is changing and that this software may not return to its status and may even be considered a threat.

Former Cambridge Analytica Employee says More than 87m Facebook Users Had Data Compromised

Far more than 87 million people may have had their Facebook data harvested by Cambridge Analytica, according to a former employee Brittany Kaiser, who testify on Tuesday in the British Parliament. In addition to the psychological test app that led to the Facebook data leak scandal, the Company also launched several other tests on the Facebook.

Former Cambridge Analytica employee says more than 87m Facebook

Committees from data, culture, media and sports of British parliamentary are currently investigating the misuse of user data by Facebook and Cambridge. Brittany Kaiser, the Company’s former executive of Cambridge Analytica, evidences to the British Parliament today as part of a hearing on fake news.

Kaiser, who worked on the business team at Cambridge Analytica’s parent company until January of this year, wrote in a statement that she was “aware in a general sense of a wide range of surveys” used by Cambridge Analytica or its partners, and she said she believes the number of people whose Facebook data may have been compromised is likely higher than the widely reported 87 million.

“In my pitches, I used to give examples, even to clients, that, if you go on Facebook and you see these viral personality quizzes, not all of them would have been designed by Cambridge Analytica, SCL Group, or our affiliates, but that these applications were designed specifically to harvest data from individuals using Facebook as the tool,” she said.

“For example there was one called the sex compass to find out what your personal preferences were privately. And then there was another one on your music personality,” she said.

Kaiser’s wrote statement, claimed the number of affected users was much higher than the 87 million claimed by Facebook:

I should emphasise that the Kogan/GSR datasets and questionnaires were not the only Facebook-connected questionnaires and datasets which Cambridge Analytica used. I am aware in a general sense of a wide range of surveys which were done by CA or its partners, usually with a Facebook login – for example, the “sex compass” quiz. I do not know the specifics of these surveys or how the data was acquired or processed. But I believe it is almost certain that the number of Facebook users whose data was compromised through routes similar to that used by Kogan is much greater than 87 million; and that both Cambridge Analytica and other unconnected companies and campaigns were involved in these activities.

If what she said is ture, it will defiantly means a further expansion of the Facebook data-disclosure scandal. Katherine did not provide any test details, but she believes the tests are all about collecting data.
Cambridge Analytica did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Install APK in Chrome OS? It will be Quick and Easy in the Future

It’s easy to install apps on Android smartphones and tablets using the APK package, and you just need to open the “from unknown source” switch in Settings. However, it may not be so easy to install an APK package from unknown sources on Chrome OS. Before the operating system allows users to install applications outside the Google Play store, users will have a lot of extra works to install APK from a third-party source.

install APK in Chrome OS

Android apps coming to Chromebooks might very well be the defining moment for Google’s Chrome OS platform. In our usage of Android apps on Chromebook, we have found Chromebook’s functionality to have multiplied innumerably. However, there’s one catch, that is, many apps on the Play Store aren’t compatible with the Chromebook. For instance, apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Uber, Inbox by Gmail, Chromecast, PayPal and more are incompatible because of various reasons like the fact that Play Store treats the Chromebook as an Android 6.0 tablet, the lack of GPS on Chromebooks etc.

Thankfully, you can always sideload Android apps through APK files but Chromebook natively does not support these files. The good news is, there’s a way to install APK files on Chromebook and that’s what we are about to tell you.

So how can you install APK package from unknown source? The user must first enable the developer mode and disable startup validation and other security features, and when the device starts, the user must also press the combination key.

Obviously, the installed process is so complicated because Google are likely prevent users from randomly installing unknown APK packages on Chrome OS, but the situation will be changed, according to UberGizmo.

A new code submission was found in Chrome Gerrit, which revealed that Google will soon allow Chrome OS administrators to enable or disable APK side loading. This will make it easier for organizations or schools that have already deployed Chrome OS to deploy applications to users without having to distribute them through Google Play stores.

If it is true in the report, it is predictable that Google’s strict stance on installing third-party sources of APK files on Chrome OS is changing, and in the near future, installing APK files on Chrome OS will be as fast and simple as Android smartphones and tablets.
