Smart Secure Software S.l – Bundling and VirusTotal Report

Just a quick post before going back to working on FreeFixer. Found a “Google Chrome” download this morning, digitally signed by Smart Secure Software S.l.

Smart secure software sl - google_chrome.exe - Click Yes to begin setup

The problem is that it was not an official Chrome download. The setup file bundled a large number of potentially unwanted programs, such as GridMonetize, IStartSurf, PepperZip, Severe Weather Alerts, Wajam, Browser App and CostMin, as shown in the screenshots below:IstartSurf installer GridMonetize installer CostMin installer

And here’s the VirusTotal report:

DomainIQ, SoftPulse and Smart Secure Software are some of the detection names.

Did you also find a file digitally signed by Smart Secure Software S.l.? What kind of download was it and where did you find it?
