I'm sure the thread will be closed...but I'd like to post here a link that can maybe explain the reason of the detection by Panda engine

Code: Select all

I was one of the first malware hunter to "analyze" the tool as you can see in the comments, the one with the biohazard avatar :-)

Even if YAC itself is not a malware/adware or a rogue software, I think it can be classified as PUP

You are right hyperion
As previously answered on some other thread its considered to belong to a potentially unwanted program so the detection won't be disabled
