huff and puff and spew adware on your system: mediacoder admits malware opencandy

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 8:30 am

mediacoder continues to be malware for its inclusion of opencandy malware of the adware flavor

mediacover developer admits adware claims in his malware ffmpeg frontend in point five in near engrish blathering


less dishonest developers need offer two downloads:  one free and one adware

INFORMED consent required to be not-nefarious


..  point #6 id refuted by point #5

mediacoder IS adware :  it shows ADS during installation wrapper running in admin context — that’s extra bad


refresh memory of some mediacoder evil activities:

it spawns a XUL window to fetch additional transcoding settings via it’s “platform” while showing ads in a frame



let meGUI be friends?
