Yamipod Detected as Virus/Malware
I wish this were a figment of my imagination and if i am wrong i'd sure appreciate if someone can please enlighten me but this is what the following antivirus programs show:

# Safety Rating: Known Malware, do not run
# Malware Family: Part of Malware group - Malware CrackServer
# Determination: Automatically determined using Prevx centralized heuristics
# Malware Form: EXPLOIT
# Malware Group Propagation Rate: Moderate (spreading)
# Malware Group: Malware CrackServer

AVG Antivirus:
#reports it as PSW virus

Kaspersky internet security suite:
#Win32 agent dropper

I can list a few others as well and the thing is i really like yamipod and how it functions using it often although now im not so sure what to think as i'd rather be safe than sorry not to mention several antivirus programs can't all possibly be wrong or erroneously be categorizing "Yamipod" as a virus/malware just for the hell of it.

Why is this happening and is anything being done to hopefully fix it or is there anything that can be done ? Any and all advice, help would definitely be welcome.. Damn i really like Yami too :(

Sincerely mkcrnths.

Re: Yamipod Detected as Virus/Malware
I came across yamipod while looking for a way not to have itunes & the itunes service running at all times on my system while still being able to sinc & load songs onto my ipod. Yamipod is perfect for that.

A Squared anti-malware is also detecting yamipod as #Win32 agent dropper.

So there's at least 3 scanners detecting this as malware.....
