Hi there! If you’ve been following me for the last year you know that I’ve been examining many software publishers that put a digital signature on their downloads. Today I found another publisher called Taras Lapin.
If you have a Taras Lapin file on your machine you may have noticed that Taras Lapin is displayed as the publisher in the UAC dialog when double-clicking on the file.
The certificate is issued by Certum Code Signing CA.
9 of the scanners detected the file. Some of the detection names for the Download Uc Browser V Handler Zip.exe file are Trojan.Crossrider1.45643, PUA.Multiplug, Multiplug-FAJ and MultiPlug (v).
Did you also find an Taras Lapin? Do you remember the download link? Please post it in the comments below and I’ll upload it to VirusTotal to see if that one is also detected.
Thanks for reading.
