Malware in CDex 2.03

Hi, my PortableApps platform shows CDex 2.03 is available to update, but if I will update it seems to start downloading,
but when it starts to install I get an error message, that the downloaded File "http://mirror.cdex.mu/CDex-2.03.exe) is invalit and cannot be installed...etc"

I use comodo Internet Security and the virus Scanner puts the file into Quarantine, becaus it recognizes "Malware@#u1rbcb3gmt8v" (whatever that means)

This is not the first time, that CDex is recognized as a Malware when updatein in Portableapps.

Any suggestions?

Best Regards

Bundleware

As indicated on the CDex Portable homepage, the actual CDex local installer has bundleware within it. As such, it may show an alert in some antivirus apps. The portable installer downloads the CDex local installer and extracts the CDex files out without running the local installer to create the portable package. This bypasses the installer's bundleware. This is, unfortunately, the only legal way to handle CDex Portable at present. You can create an exception for the app or use an alternate app from our directory if you'd like.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
