I suspect that the next time this Visicom anti-phishing tool tries to update again, that avast will either alert on the site as it tries to download the signatures or when the unencrypted signatures are on the system.

Looking into the same issue here on a user's computer and the main problem I see with this is that this program was installed UNKNOWINGLY along with a toolbar in internet explorer. The user doesn't even have permission to install things, yet things like this slip through the cracks and it most likely installed without the user even knowing or they were tricked into thinking they needed it.

These may or may not be safe, but if I were you I would uninstall the following in Add/Remove programs or Programs and Features in Control Panel:

Anti-Phishing Domain Advisor
Spam Free Search Bar

Hi brandon0413,

Thank you, for confirming for what I supposed was at the root of the problem.
On the other hand these postings are also very valuable feed-back for you.
Stay secure and lots of success with your anti-spam software,

polonus

Visicom legit or not? Comments on virustotal:

This malware redirects all the misstyped addresses to urlseek90.vmn.net
and it can be found in C:\ProgramData\Anti-phishing Domain Advisor

never installed it. im was searching somethin in google and there was a bad side blocked by this panda s**t.
found it in taskmngr and searched for the directory. it was on C:\ProgramData not regular like C:\Program Files.
C:\ProgramData is an invisible folder. so why the hell is it installed? dont like it!!!

it runs like a virus detection tool, but slows down my windoze vista. GRRRR I HATE PERVERTED FISHING SITES WITH MALWARE!!!!!!!!

Considering the VT result is from a year and a half ago, it isn't really useful.
