Additional information on OpenCandy in CNET TechTracker...
We have been able to verify that the latest version of TechTracker was being flagged by AVG. A false positive submission was immediately filed and as of last night the software appears to be undetected. A subsequent scan of the software this morning similarly returned no threat. As AVG is a partner of OpenCandy's, we will escalate if we don't hear back confirmation soon.
<div>It should be noted that online virus scanners such as VirusTotal were not detecting the AVG threat definition in the application and that the definition may have been an error on AVG's part. Additionally, we performed a spot check and were unable to identify other OpenCandy integrated installers with the same threat definition. Users who have quarantined their software installers will need to update their definitions and restore the software. </div>
<div>We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or unnecessary alarm this may have caused. We will continue to investigate the issue and will work to prevent its occurrence in the future. </div>
