cdn.superantispyware URL:Blacklist
« on: March 05, 2024, 06:40:22 PM »
When I was updating my Supterantispyware, this popped up. The attached is the 2nd time as I panicked and didn't screenshot the 1st time. It seems to be reacting to a site/server Superantispyware gets its updates from. It updated just fine though.

Is this a false positive? Or is it legit and Superantispyware connecting to malicious sites for its updates? Since it did update, am I infected?

Currently running scans....

It isn't unusual that antivirus protection programs can conflict, but this is usually if they are both active.

I have no idea what might be in that .XML file that could trigger this.

Seems fixed now; SAS just auto-updated and I got no alert.
