Hello readers! Just a quick post on a publisher called OOO DIGITAL VEI that I found while running some tests for the upcoming FreeFixer release. The suspicious file is named adobe_flash_player.exe.
Viewing the certificate information is also possible by looking under the digital signature tab for the file. Here the certificate says that OOO DIGITAL VEI is located in Moscow, Russa.
And USERTrust and Comodo is upwards in the certificate chain:
What caught my attention was that the download was called adobe_flash_player.exe. This might look like an official Adobe Flash Player download, but it is not. If it was an official download, it should be digitally signed by Adobe Systems Incorporated. Here’s how the authentic Adobe Flash Player looks like when you double click on it. Notice that the “Verified publisher” says “Adobe Systems Incorporated”.
The problem with the OOO DIGITAL VEI file is that it is detected by many of the antivirus software. Here are some of the detection names: W32.HfsAdware.90CE, PUP.Optional.Bundle and InstallCore (fs).
Did you also find a OOO DIGITAL VEI download? What kind of download was it?
Thank you for reading.
