Recently, Easeus Backup software was recommended to me and I see that throughout this forum there are users recommending easeus, so I thought I'd give it a try, attempted to download the free version from the what I believe to be the Developer's website
(https://www.easeus.com/) and at this stage the AV I was using was Windows Defender which I have edited registry to enable WD to scan for PUA, whilst attempting to download installer (tb_free.exe) I was confronted with the following at the bottom of page:- tb_free.exe contained a virus and was deleted (1st capture link below)
Thinking that maybe this wan't correct I started up my Mint machine and downloaded application, once downloaded I uploaded the installer to Virustotal the results of that are are the 2nd capture in the following link:-
Needless to say I haven't attempted to install as 1 maybe a false positive but 10 is a bit hard to ignore, I've done this several times over a week just in case there may have been a problem and it cleared up, this didn't happen.
So, could someone with the knowledge/skill to have a look at this and see if there's something that shouldn't be in there and is, or is this standard for this company and this has always been the case and is the cost for using free version.
I'm not after opinions or reviews.
Please, I'm new to this forum and if my question is posted in the wrong place by all means move or advise where to go with this. If it goes against guidelines or policy, delete.
