Just a short note on a publisher called Innovative Systems LLC. When I uploaded the Innovative Systems LLC file to VirusTotal it had a 9% detection rate. Some of anti-virus scanners calls the file InstallCore. Symantec classifies the file as Trojan.Gen.2:
According to the certificate, Innovative Systems LLC is located in Ukraine.
Did you also find a file digitally signed by Innovative Systems LLC? What kind of download was it and where did you find it?
I’ll try to follow up on this one later, to see if the other anti-virus programs adds it to their detection.
Hello again, sorry for being slow on the posting lately. I blame it on the cold I caught last week. Anyway, just wanted to give you the heads up on a publisher called PSK LOGEUM LLC, that according to the embedded certificate appears to be located in Russia.
The reason I’m writing this blog post is that the PSK LOGEUM LLC file is detected by a few on the anti-virus programs. McAfee report it as BehavesLike.Win32.Dropper.ch and Qihoo reports it as Win32/Rootkit.Rootkig.7e5.
When I tested the PSK LOGEUM LLC file it installed an adware called BlockAndSurf.
Did you also find a PSK LOGEUM LLC file? What kind of download was it? If you remember the download link, please post it in the comments below.
Thanks for reading.

Hello readers, just a short post on a publisher called Bestop-app before going back to some coding on FreeFixer. By looking at the embedded certificate we can see that Bestop-app appears to be located in Tel Aviv in Israel.
After uploading the Bestop-app file – FlvPlayerSetup.exe – to VirusTotal, it was clear that it’s probably better to delete the file than running it. The detection rate was 22% and some of the detection names were: PUP.Optional.InstallCore, CryptInno and Install Core Click run software.
Did you also find a Bestop-app file?
