In answer to the comments made earlier today by Ratel, Briann and JGF plus others......

The developers of YAK have already admitted the issues mentioned in the links you provide and took steps to correct them. What your links don't provide is the date that the comments about YAK were posted. The information contained within the page almost certainly precedes YAK's admission, so all you are doing is giving an unfair negative vibe to this software, which in turn probably leads to many community members not downloading this software, which I've already used and found to be satisfactory.

Sadly once something negative has been written about something on the internet it remains in one form or another due to it being copy/pasted to various other tech sites and soon you have a situation where a software is being lambasted by overly suspicious community members because they find several references (all probably originating from one post).

The giveaway team throughly check all softwares given away here. I believe they have had at least one instance where they missed some nastly adware a few years ago, and a software was posted in the now defunct freeware section that contained some nasty bug, but that was removed immediately it was discovered; apart from these two instance's over the almost nine years this site has been operating, there has never been a software given away that has contained malware. The site has a big standing with all of the major search engines (which can usually be verified by posting a comment here then doing a search. You'll find that more often than not the giveaway site will pop up in the first search a the top of the list.

I appreciate all that you guys do that often post reviews about the software given away here, but I also believe you have a responsibility to check your sources throughly and not scare monger by posting links to sites that probably are not the originators of that information. This puts off a lot of community members unecessarily due to your suspicious natures and is a great shame for both the community members who have been scared off and for the developer who has been kind enough to give away his product to literally tens of thousands of giveaway community members.


I'm really saddened by the way these comments have developed over the last few years since Ashraf stopped posting his excellent reviews.

I've tried a multitude of times to uninstall it but to no avail. I read everywhere on how how to uninstall it, but each time I do and it says to restart my computer after doing so, it's still there. It changed my homepage on Firefox, and each time I open up a new tab, their search page shows up.

HTTPS Everywhere has been uninstalled by them as well as Foxlingo.

I regret downloading this product.

The official revoking of anything surely should tell you not to mess with this Company or any other unless a mistake happens. With the way the world is right now, all it takes is a department or level to give the Company a bad name and ......to try to sell us things the Company has done and is doing, don't mean squat in today's world, no disrespect intended of course. YAC's credibility is about shot in my book. Sometimes all it takes is 1 person in a company to ruin it.

Just installed this on a Windows XP computer with some adware. Immediately of note is how the live scanner does not provide very much information when it blocks a program from adding its self to the start up list. It will only tell you the name of it, not where it is located on your system, or anything else. It therefor conveniently blocked the installation of Software Informer, bundled and started by GAOTD...

As iObit found to its enduring cost, messing around with Malwarebytes is absolutely Not A Good Idea.

That's because Malwarebytes engineers are amongst the most forensic in the software industry and can, and will, create traps for those attempting to steal its database. The Malwarebytes blog is very specific in its explanation of the measures it has taken to deal with YAC, in the same way that it was very specific in its explanation of what it did in regard to Chinese giant iObit.

The difference here is that iObit huffed and puffed all the way to the brink of legal action before backing off, losing in the process countless thousands of former iObit users who, like me, will never give any iObit product room on their computers again. YAC, however, has taken the opposite route of remaining resolutely silent, perhaps thinking that if -- unlike iObit -- it doesn't try high-profile bluster with Malwarebytes, everything will go quietly away.

Unfortunately for YAC, it won't.

I don't blame giveawayoftheday for not knowing the background to the Malwarebytes / YAC issue because GOTD cannot be expected to know everything that's happening in every sector of the software industry worldwide.

Today's developer has had months -- not weeks, not days -- but months to offer up a defence to the Malwarebytes' allegations but has failed to do so. No further comment is necessary.

And I remember reading complaints against Malwarebytes but without the proof I can't be specific. Nobody is completely clean here so I try not use morals as a basis for trying software. All I can say is it worked for me when none other succeeded and that is my bottom line. I don't have time to spare for ethics.

When you are sent to an external link by a long-time and trusted reviewer like karl or papin, you do not expect to suddenly, one day, find their links are being passed through a filter-site which does nothing useful, but simply adds another layer of obfuscation and a data mining opportunity for the owners of the layer and maybe the owners of the site.

You can bypass it by following my explanation above, which I repeat here.

Simply highlight the link you wish to go to as if copying it, then instead of copying it, simply right-click and then click on "open link in new tab". This will take you there directly if you're in Firefox; it should do the same if you're using IE.

Reply   |   Comment by bart  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

Perhaps because the definition for the word 'Surly' connotates bad or possibly malevolent behavior. Interesting in light of the fact that the software offered today is presumably designed to protect from such malware behaviors.

That is easy: it advertises malware in advertisements that pop up center bottom of your screen. Your pc is running slowly, there are windows errors, your disk nearly full, you need an update of java, blah,blah,blah. They appear randomly, all into tricking you into installing affiliated malware. (toolbars, advertising channels, trackers, changing search engine results etc.). It is almost unbelievable that sur.ly is advertised to prevent malware from being installed by dubious links: at the same time they get paid for delivering links to malware.

There were a lot of negative comments yesterday but i was really excited about the soft ware and i know my experiences could have convinced others to at least try it.

for anyone who downloaded yesterday and didn't experiment, i want to share a little gif animation i shared yesterday that no one saw. to me this is beginner's luck and shows the potential of yesterday's software.

My sincerest thanks to all of you out there that are like Karl and Paul who take tremendous time out of their day to anaylize and report on each day's offer. Without you I am sure that thousands of us would be downloading and installing unnecessary and potentially dangerous software....

Today's offer just stresses the need for everyone to take the 5 minutes and READ THE COMMENTS before installing something.... the links that people provide and the indepth reviews are amazing... again, all done by people who voluntarily take the time to do the research.....

Hats off to everyone!

Seems like today we have a very controversial software.

Read before you download:
http://www.yac.mx/privacy-policy

YAC is more concerned by its own privacy than with yours. The domain is behind a proxy (GoDaddy). The most information you can get is there: http://whois.domaintools.com/yac.mx and https://who.godaddy.com/whoisstd.aspx?domain=yac.mx

Read before you install (and more on Elex do Brasil Participações Ltda Technology):

Gone are the days when people could safely click on any link on the web. All of these links are directed towards an advertising website and I made the mistake of just clicking on one. Like the #1 comment, these are pointed to sur.ly web page. If anyone wants to visit these links, copy and paste them into the address bar and don't click on them.

Reply   |   Comment by Gavin  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+33)

According to them, sur.ly is a service that provides a mecanism to prevent spammers from flooding forums with "bad" links. What is "bad" is up to sur.ly to decide. They also collect data.

"giveawayoftheday dot com" recently subscribed to sur.ly is but failed to communicate about it. At first, I thought my PC was hijacked.

I believe it's safe, at least for now. You have to authorize javascript for sur.ly because it encapsulates the site linked into its own page through a .js script. To avoid surfing through sur.ly, copy/paste the link to a new tab/window.

papin,

Thanks for the links and the hint about sur.ly. Will use it from now on until GOTD gets rid of it.

About the copy paste to bypass sur.ly. I just tried that, but had a little accident.

I highlighted the link to copy it but then accidentally clicked on "open in a new tab" whlie the highlight was on, and the system totally bypassed sur.ly and went straight to imgur.com, so you might want to go that route, too, instead of opening a new tab then pasting the link, which sounds as extra work to a lot of users.

Reply   |   Comment by bart  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

My apologies.

I forgot to specify that I use Firefox as my primary browser. And that I right-click a lot of the time, instead of simply clicking. But then again I have set my system to recognize single-clicks to do an action like start a program.

If you don't click on the advertisments (fake warnings and stuff) you should be ok, but the sur.ly page is dangerous for inexperienced users who might be tricked into the idea that something is wrong with their computer. By the way: Javascript is something completely different than Java. Normally javascript is activated in a browser, it needs no updating (sometimes a browser (mainly IE) will ask if it is ok to display javascript/activeX content on a site). The "warning" about a Java update is something completely different. The "warnings" on sur.ly are completely at random, they are only displayed to trick people into installing some type of malware or pup (possibly unwanted programs). Don't click on any advertisement ("warnings") on sur.ly.

This is the complete opposite of a security software. Like those fake anti-viruses that are installed with some malware. There's a number of unneeded tools included, it's always contacting the internet, reports a large number of false positives and incorrect or misleading information. Installing this software will do more harm than good.

http://www.howtogeek.com/198622/heres-what-happens-when-you-install-the-top-10-download.com-apps/
The above article speaks about this YAC software and explains clearly how bad it is.

Based on the previous commenters, the many articles posted all over the web, and my own experience with it, I will not be downloading this software.

Besides the above links I also find this:

TRUSTe is a reliable DPM company and I used to submit software and tried to get the award but failed at last, it's embarrassed, hehe:(

So anyway, I tried this product, it has a nice interface and many useful tools. Actually, it didn't find any malware on my computer, but I like the adblock functions, it's useful and support many browsers, so I'll keep using it several days if it doesn't bring any trouble to me.

Norton REALLY didn't like this programme! I strongly advise against downloading and installing this one, and I'll explain why.

I was unsettled by the fact that it started to use my name immediately it was installed, it had obviously dug around the system somewhere. Then the tool-bars and pop-up bits started. I did a Google search and this programme is seriously distrusted by experts, and has lost its accreditation, both for being a rip-off of another programme and because it has a reputation as a fraud and possibly even a virus in itself. In addition to links others have posted, |I also found this one - http://botcrawl.com/remove-yac-virus/ which others may find useful. It claims that 'The program is known to perform fraudulent computer scans in order to create customers and collect personal user information.'.

Uninstalled with some effort as it didn't want to be uninstalled, then offered the latest version to try and tempt me back. System restart required.

GAOTD is trusted by its users, may I respectfully suggest that you may have been misled by this one and that this programme is taken down before that reputation is dented.

OPSWAT Certification Revoked for YAC

Posted by Ronald Melencio / March 20, 2015





Malwarebytes recently posted claims that Elex Technologies has been stealing information from the Malwarebytes signature database, specifically for Elex Technologies’ Yet Another Cleaner (YAC) product. Based on the claim and thorough testing presented by Malwarebytes, we began our own investigation into Elex Technologies, who had previously received OPSWAT Certification for their products.

At OPSWAT we place a great deal of importance on legal and ethical business practices, and we believe strongly in establishing partnerships with companies who conduct business appropriately. As part of the OPSWAT Certification process, we perform tests to ensure that antivirus products in particular are not rogue or scareware applications. The claims against Elex Technologies were concerning to us; although their product fit our criteria for antivirus certification, their methods for developing the product were called into question.

After obtaining the data from Malwarebytes, and doing some internal analysis, our R&D team was able to validate Malwarebytes’ claim. Therefore, we’ve made a decision to remove the existing OPSWAT Certification for YAC from the program. Yet Another Cleaner 4.x will no longer be Bronze Certified under Windows Antispyware. We’ve asked Elex Technologies to remove any badges or information of partnership with OPSWAT from their website. Additionally, Elex Tech products (including YAC) will now be flagged as Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA) by OESIS.

We have discontinued our partnership with Elex Technologies and plan to continue our policy going forward that such business practices will not be tolerated.

Installed and registered on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

Too many programs try to contact the I-Net: Among those "uninstall.exe" in a temporary directory as phone home component:

Hmmm, installs the following services, problems guaranteed (promised!):
iSafeKrnl Instance
YAC Boot Driver
YAC Kit Driver
YAC Mini-Filter Driver
YAC Monitor Driver
YAC NDIS Driver
YAC Ring3 Driver
YAC Service

A Brasilian company without name and address with a Mexican Internet address.
"Elex do Brasil Participações Ltda Technology Inc is a worldwide supplier of self-developed innovative system utilities and security solutions for professional and private use."

Starts to update the database after installation automatically.
After start a modern, non resizable window opens. You can start to check your system - as a one click option.

http://i.imgur.com/zUgnvgw.png

Hmmm, it would be a long comment to comment every item. It does partly show, what the program has found as "problem",
dict.leo.or and duckduckgo.com as malicious plugins

does not show the junk files or wrong traces (registry keys). This is a simple blackbox.
http://i.imgur.com/WBlKpK0.png

The protection "protects" only the installed default browser - no others.
http://i.imgur.com/IedV1tx.png

The anti-malsware scan takes quite a long time and shows the following threads:
http://i.imgur.com/DmcEjkL.png
Detects empty values from Zoner Photo Studio as "heuristic threads" - open the registry editor, if you want to see the location.
Be careful with removing so called threads, if you don't know, what you delete!!!

Difficult to give an opinion, INMHO too many different tasks under one hood. Influences the running system with a lot of services, security isues not to mention.

Maybe you will be happy with this one year program.
Uninstalled via reboot - I prefer to keep my windows as simple as possible.

I like to research and have a look at the software being offered here, like Karl, before I download it. Here is what I found. https://blog.malwarebytes.org/fraud-scam/2015/03/yet-another-cleaner-yet-another-stealer/

Recently, malwarebytes discovered that a relatively popular “anti-malware” product known as “Yet Another Cleaner” or YAC for short, has been claiming to be an affiliate of Malwarebytes in addition to using a lot of our detection names as their own. We looked deeper into their operation and found some pretty amazing and ugly things.

The Good
“Yet Another Cleaner” is owned by Elex do Brasil Participações Ltda Technology Inc. They are located in Brazil and have a wide array of products including a speed test, alarm clock, IP lookup and of course, YAC.

YAC itself is a fairly sleek-looking program and very quick as well. It seems to have the ability to protect users from malicious web sites, cleanup junk files on their system, uninstall applications and even to block advertisements!

The Bad
The reality is while they might claim YAC can do all the things mentioned above, how the product actually performs is an open question. Anyway, we got a tip-off as to Elex do Brasil Participações Ltda Technology Inc. being an affiliate company to Malwarebytes, since they suggest an affiliation in their terms of use policy.

The above I copied, from malwarebytes blog, and pasted here.

Just a word of warning, when I clocked on the link given to the Malwarebytes blog, which is an https secure site, I found a prefix sur.ly inserted, thus HTTPS:SUR.LY then the real address!
At the bottom of the screen there was a message saying my disk was nearly full, click here to fix blah blah etc., and arrow pointing to the task bar.
This is just how malware gets added, though it might be something else, either way, anything that pretends to be a message from your PC should be avoided like the plague.
The blog was very good, and as I already use malwarebytes premium, I would not have tried this, so thanks for the heads up, but not sure yet how the SUR.LY got added, I will have to investigate, unless one of the knowledgeable readers can shed some light on this. Either way, take care where you click.

A little more on the warning I gave above. I went direct to the web page the poster had linked to, and it is fine, and does not contain the bubble "click here to fix your hard drive is nearly full", which meant the sur.ly was being added. It appears this is added supposedly by the host web site, (in this case GOTD), to help protect against links that might contain malware, but strangely that in this case actually added an extra layer to the web page, (the bubble is contained in a screen floating on top of the main one, you can see the close screen a little to the left and up).
I would respectfully request the GOTD team look into this, as it could mean the "sur.ly" addition on their web site, which is supposed to prevent malware being injected into links posted, has been possibly hacked by a Bot.

The above comments of Brian are important, do´nt click on any popups, notifications, or other strange messages. Sur.ly seems to give advertisement space to all kinds of dubious softwarecompanies.

It now have screendumps of the notification. It says "This content requires java update 13.6, would you like to update it now".

Found this : http://malwaretips.com/blogs/this-content-might-require-java-update-13-6-virus/

It seems to install some kind of advertisement channel "It generates web traffic, collects sales leads for other dubious sites, and will display advertisements and sponsored links within your web browser.on your computer". It is rather difficult to remove.
If the GOTD sur.ly redirection is meant to prevent malware, it is clearly counterproductive: it advertises malware.

First of all, we deeply regret about the incident you mentioned and obviously there used to be some problems in the operation procedure of the product which caused a negative influence and made MWB feel uncomfortable, we are so sorry about it.

I've used this software off and on for years and it stopped problems that the very best couldn't accomplish. Yes, it is intrusive but it has to be to do what it does. Other malware competitors have been trashing Yac for as long I can remember but if you learn how to use this software correctly it will save you a lot of time.

I use the Torch browser which is an offshoot of Chrome. When I hover over the blue link above it shows the link with the sur.ly inserted in it. Therefore the addition happens at the GAWOD site. Many of the links on the GAWOD site have the same addition but not all. If you don't trust the addition, just copy and paste the URL into your browser and you will access the link without the addition. This is a good example of the fact that whatever a link displays is not necessarily the same as what the actual link is and the actual link might do damage to your computer. It is always best to copy and paste or to display the link by hovering over it to minimize the potential of a link causing problems.

Hm...I have been using YAC for almost 3 months and frankly say, I donot find any malicous trace within it. Several days ago I tried the adblock session and got an awesome experince. No annoying ad and all pure...I haven’t got this clean feeling for years...Thank you guys...Before evaluating a software, it is better to experience by yourself

Hi, for your comment, I want to say something about YAC. About 3 weeks ago my friend told me it is a pretty good cleaner, and it's free. Then I tried. Luckily, it never had problems.
