Adware in ImageMagick installer? (7.08-28-Q16-x64-dll)

I don’t know if this is a false positive or not. I’d greatly appreciate it if someone else could check the validity of this detection.

I’m trying to update my image processing software.

When I attempt to download the Windows installer ImageMagick-7.08-28-Q16-x64-dll.exe, whether via HTTP or FTP, CIS 11 blocks the download, complaining that it is infected with

The same thing happens when I try to download ImageMagick-7.0.8-28-Q8-x64-static.exe

See, for example,

Comodo Internet Security Premium 11 v with DB v 30471 is installed under Windows 7 Professional, x64.

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.


Thank you for reporting this.
We’ll check it and get back to you soon.

Kind Regards,
Erik M.


This is to inform you that false-positive has been fixed.
You can update to AV database Version <30476> of Comodo Internet Security Version<> and confirm it.

Best regards


I was indeed able to download and install ImageMagick.
