Hello! Just a short note on a publisher called DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L.U.
You can also view the certificate by right-clicking on the file, and looking under the Digital Signature tab: According to the certificate we can see that DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L.U is located in Santa Cruz, Tenerife in Spain and that the certificate is issued by thawte SHA256 Code Signing CA.
After uploading the DIGITAL PLUGIN S.L.U file – Setup(1).exe – to VirusTotal, it was clear that it’s probably better to delete the file than running it. The detection rate was 53% and some of the detection names were: PUA.SoftPulse!, AdPlugin.FNB, Gen:Variant.Mikey.24388, Trojan.Domaiq.321, PUP.Optional.SoftPulse and HEUR/QVM11.1.Malware.Gen.
Did you also find a DIGITAL PLUGIN SLU file?
Thank you for reading.
Welcome! Was looking for some downloads to play around with and found one, digitally signed by Volvan Premium SL. The file is named google_chrome.exe.
To view more information about the embedded certificate you can right-click on the file, then choose Properties and then select the Digital Signatures tab. According to the embedded certificate we can see that Volvan Premium SL is located in Barcelona, Spain and that the certificate is issued by VeriSign Class 3 Code Signing 2010 CA.
The problem here is that if google_chrome.exe really was a setup file for Google, it would be digitally signed by Google Inc and not by some unknown company. This looks very suspicious.
So, why did I put up this blog post? Well, the thing is that the Volvan Premium SL file is detected by many of the anti-virus scanners, according to VirusTotal. F-Secure classifies google_chrome.exe as Gen:Variant.Application.Bundler, Malwarebytes calls it PUP.Optional.DomaIQ and McAfee calls it SoftPulse.a
When I ran the Volvan Premium SL file it offered a bunch of bundled softwares, such as Wajam, HostSecurePlugin, Salus, SpeedChecker and Super Optimizer.
Did you also find a Volvan Premium SL file? Do you remember where you downloaded it?
Thanks for reading.
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.

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