Digital Plugin S.L Publisher – VirusTotal Detections

Sorry for not posting anything during the days. I’ve been having a few days off visiting friends and family. Before my time off I found another publisher called DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L that bundles some potentially unwanted programs. The file I found was called Player.exe and I could see DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L appear when double-clicking on the file.

Update 2015-06-29: Found another download with the publisher name “Digital Plugin SL“.

Viewing the certificate information is also possible by looking under the digital signature tab for the file. Here the certificate says that DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L is located in Tenerife.

And the certificate was issued by GlobalSign.

The reason for posting about DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L is that the file is detected by many of the anti-virus programs. Currently player.exe is detected by 13 of the 52 anti-virus scanners:

Hope you found this post useful.

Did you also find a download signed by DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L? What kind of download was it?

Update 2015-09-12: Today I noticed another download called google_chrome.exe, signed by Digital Plugin SL.

  1. Well, should I allow my PC to install this program? Is it malware or not? I got the same window you did, for Digital Plugin S.L. I got steered here due to some video program not playing correctly and it APPEARED to be a suggestion that I update my Google video player. Is my video player a google program or software on my PC?

    1. Don’t run the file. As far as I’m aware, Google does not have any product called “Google Video Player”. And if there was, it should be digitally signed by Google Inc., not by an unknown company on Tenerife.

      If you like, upload your copy of the Digital Plugin S.L file to to see if the antivirus programs detect it.
