    What is Freemake Video Converter:

    Threat Classification: PUP

    Freemake Video Converter is often presented as regular and legitimate software, which could be used to convert your video or audio files. We’ve run multiple tests, scanning the Freemake Video Converter and we were able to classify it as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program), mainly because it is being distributed using suspicious and questionable software bundles, configured to install multiple suspicious software applications (classified as PUPs) by default, when the user accepts the EULA / Terms of Use from the Quick/Recommended installation process.  That’s why our security consultants are always opt-out the default installation method and select Advanced/Custom, where every single configuration option is configured at a time – so-called step-by-step model – basically, the idea is, that you could, in theory, avoid installing those PUPs classified applications – install only the Freemake Video Converter. The Freemake Video Converter was configured to modify operating system setup so that it could run at system start-up and to consume lots of computer resources, even while idle. Furthermore, the program is bundled with some other freeware applications, some of which were already flagged as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), and are being installed by default, when the user accepts the EULA and had selected an express/recommended installation. The possible distribution of Freemake Video Converter varies but is not limited to – cnet.com, download.com, makefree.com, installing third-party programs, free software products, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking on ads or banners etc..
