    How to stop Malware using ironSource InstallCore engine


      Do anyone have good information on how to breake the Israelic Ironsorce Installcore code? It is being utilized in a growing number of malware at my endpoint.


      Anyone have any reverse enginering information, to expose weakness in this awfull installer?

          What is the name of the malware?  Ironsource Installcore is a perfectly genuine entity but the name of the malware might be more useful.

              Not sure in that case especially as you are using Enterprise as things are handled differently from the Consumer side, where I help out.  Support may have ideas on blocking it.   Meanwhile hopefully someone with corporate experience will spot this.


              I was hoping there was a specific known malware name and I could point you to a removal guide, sorry to waste your time.


              There is one removal guide for Clearthink Adware:  How to remove ClearThink Ads (Virus Removal Guide)


              Meanwhile be very careful what you download and where from, watch out for optional extras attached to the download that you don't need.
