Over the past couple of weeks we’ve seen several computers with en.softronic.com downloader installed. It just so happens that those computers were also infected with a lot of malware. We’re not saying it came from the Softronic downloader, but the downloader is suspicious.
When you download from www.en.softronic.com and you click a clearly labeled download button, you’re redirected to a download page, with another button that says Download. But if you stop and read what you’re about to download, it’s a downloader (a download manager). So use caution if you use www.en.softronic.com for any downloads. We have not tested the downloader, nor are we saying it caused the malware infections we saw on several computers. But any time a company tries to get you to download something other than what you came for, then you have to look at that company with a jaded eye.
Our advice? Don’t use Softronic for downloading software. We highly recommend www.filehippo.com — a very nice site that makes downloading easy and worry free.
