    Telos: Simple DNSCrypt update to v0.7

    Yes, well. It is a .bat, so one black mark… Actually that’s an automatic deal-breaker for me. And then there’s the hex string in braces: is that a registry key? Second black mark 🙁

    I’m assuming this was part of a Task Scheduler script, but I admit it’s only a guess as no evidence has been provided.

    I threw out Zemana Free for using a–sort of–similar update methodology. Responsible devs don’t use inconsistent file paths/names, known malware vectors like .bat, or registry keys.


    Understanding the scope of the problem is the first step on the path to true panic. [Florence Ambrose, "Freefall"]
