Funnel Connector (Fried Cookie Ltd) – 7% Detection Rate By VirusTotal – InstallCore

Welcome! Just wanted to give you the heads up on a file called Skype_Setup.exe that’s digitally signed by Funnel Connector (Fried Cookie Ltd.).

Funnel Connector Fried Cookie Ltd. certificate

What caught my attention was that the download was called Skype_Setup.exe. This might look like an official Skype download, but it is not. If it was an official download, it should have been digitally signed by Skype Software Sarl. Here’s how the authentic Skype looks like when you double click on it. Notice that the “Verified publisher” says “Skype Software Sarl”.

The problem with the Funnel Connector (Fried Cookie Ltd.) file is that it is detected by some of the anti-viruses. Here are some of the detection names: Application.Win32.FriedCookie.CIRK, Win32.Application.InstallCore.DI and InstallCore (fs).
