what is BC's official opinion about Tiranium AV? and what do its users feel?

on a side note, my friend downloaded something that was advertised 'tiranium cloud scanner' but found malware in it:

 

hxxp://www.mediafire.com/download/69ord392oje74qh/Tiranium_GARK.zip

 

zip file locked; password is virus

 

he checked at VT which confirmed it:

Bleeping Computer does not have an official policy for any anti-virus.

Tiranium Anti-Virus FAQs
Tiranium Anti-Virus EULA

MediaFire is a free file and image hosting web site. You (and your friend) should always download from the vendor's official web site rather than use a third-party hosting site which could host files with malware.

I am not familiar with this product and doubt many of our members use it. There is a discussion topic at MalwareTips Security forum which may provide some of the information you are seeking.

So the file was not the anti-virus but a stand-alone remover...that explains the detection.

Certain embedded files that are part of legitimate programs or specialized fix tools, may at times be detected by some anti-virus and anti-malware scanners as suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not the case. This occurs for a variety of reasons to include the tool's compiler, the files it uses, whether files are compressed or packed, what behavior (routines, scripts, etc) it performs, any registry strings it may contain and the type of security engine that was used during the scan. Other legitimate files which may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access for scanning but often trigger alerts by anti-virus software.

When flagged by an anti-virus or security scanner, it's because the program includes features, behavior or files that appear suspicious or which can potentially be used for malicious purposes. Compressed and packed files in particular are often flagged as suspicious by security software because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. These detections do not necessarily mean the file is malicious or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others or that it was simply detected as suspicious or a threat due to the security program's heuristic analysis engine which provides the ability to detect possible new variants of malware. Anti-virus scanners cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert you or even automatically remove them. In these cases the detection is a "false positive" and can be ignored.
