Hello, I've written an article that explains How to Report Malware or False Positives to Multiple Antivirus Vendors.

It is meant to be a comprehensive list of all reputable vendors who produce products that rely on signature detection, in some way, in order to detect all manner of malware. What I have done is investigate how to submit malware, and false positives to all of them. I have then taken this information and created a mailing list that allows you, with a few clicks, to submit malware to the majority of all of the anti-malware vendors in the world. At least that is the idea. You can also submit the malware to the reset of them manually, but the idea is to make it as easy as possible to submit it to as many as possible with as little work as possible.

Please use this article to submit any malware you find to as many vendors as possible so we can help to make the online world a safer place. Also, for anyone who is able, and willing, to help I could use your help to improve this list. Please provide me with whatever feedback you have about the article and help me to make the information provided as accurate, and poignant, as possible. It would be most effective to leave the feedback in the comments section of the article so I have all of the feedback in one place. This will help me to best utilize it to improve the article.

Thank you.

Avira, Sophos, CA (Computer Associates), F-Prot, G-Data, Twister, Malwarebytes, SAS, Drive Sentry, Vipre....

Some more anti-malware rather than anti-virus, but is there a differance!

Nice list Chiron, good work  :-TU
A couple of computers :P

I've now added Quick Heal to the list. I've also found their online submission page.

I appreciate you pointing this out to me. Thank you.

Thank you for pointing this out to me. I've now added the email address to the list.

I had been operating under the assumption that if I could find a web submission form I didn't need to include an email address, but if you believe it to be useful I have no problem including them.

Please let me know of any others that you also feel should have an email address provided.

Thanks, I've included the products from that list and updated the formatting of this post as well (and the title). I just hope the email addresses from that list are still valid. I included the web submission forms if I could find them, but some I couldn't find so I had to use the email addresses from the list. Thanks again.

There, I've finished tracking down every vendor I could find. I dare anyone to find a longer list (because I'll then copy it and expand mine ;D).

Let me know if there's any I've missed.

Thanks. I've now incorporated its information is now mine. >:-D

Why. You have given me much more information then I had. Of course if the page had had more than I had before you sent me it I might be hunting you down, but it didn't. (Lucky you ;))

Do you know of any other antiviruses. Also, I'm now incorporating both the web submission forms and the email addresses, if I can find them.

Thanks.

let me think *thinking *crash *reboot *ok :D

ok i know i will regret this but i make a list now... :D
if you want to you can take the link to every thing directly or you only take the board themselfs...
i have a new objective i bring this list to perfection with you :)
i think its time to make this list not only for submition but for everything about the products from submition, to support,
to feature request and so one that would make this list perfect and show them that comodo is community powered ;)
i also addet firewalls to the list because they are security software to and the javacoolsoftware and spybot are maleware and suspicuse websites.
i addet security blogs to and beta ares and so one but i am not finished jet i have about 40% done i think now its up to you to make the list readabel ;)


We need a fu ... wiki :D
i think i talk to melih about that.
