Welcome! If you’ve been following me for the last year you know that I’ve been examining many software publishers that put a digital signature on their downloads. Today I found another publisher called Astro Delivery (Fried Cookie Ltd.).
You can also check the digital signature under the file’s properties. According to the certificate we can see that Astro Delivery (Fried Cookie Ltd.) is located in Tel Aviv, Israel and that the certificate is issued by GlobalSign CodeSigning CA – G2. The certificate is pretty new: its validity period started yesterday, on the 21st of October.
One issue here, and this could perhaps be one of the reason why a few anti-virus programs have chosen to detect the file, is that Skype_Setup.exe is not an official Skype download. If it was, it would be digitally signed by Skype Software Sarl.
The scan result from VirusTotal below shows that only 4% of the antivirus programs detect the Astro Delivery (Fried Cookie Ltd.) file. It is detected under names such as a variant of Win32/InstallCore.QH and Riskware.Win32.InstallCore.dfgoti. It will be interesting to see if other anti-virus scanners choose to follow ESET and NANO.
Did you also find a Astro Delivery (Fried Cookie Ltd.) file?
Thanks for reading.
