Just downloaded Camfrog in http://download.cnet.com/camfrog/ (got redirected to there by the official site) a few days ago and just now after updating my Malwarebytes database to its newest, the Camfrog installer got detected as a malware. It appeared as 'PUP.Optional.Spigot.A' in the log. How is that possible? A product that has over 96 millions downloads in CNET?

Someone said that the installer is bundled with a keylogger. Here, look at the comments section: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/425edff52916a66bf74263438452e3017d03f802494de3b5b571ad85f223a2ca/analysis/

 

Also, there's another who mentioned that it's a malware by CNET's side. Look at the user reviews: http://download.cnet.com/camfrog/

 

I don't know who the culprit is but either way, should I not worry more since MBAM has removed that PUP thing?
