How to Report Malware or False Positives to Multiple Antivirus Vendors

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.

Useful and classic

Thanks Chiron494

This will be useful for not only members, but guests as well. I will sticky this for 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

Quick Heal

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.

This is an excellent idea Chiron, reflecting Comodo’s community spirit!

Best wishes


One can also send malicious files to Avira Antivir through this id as well

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.

here you go:

or easyer :wink:

i know its old but the onlyone i could find…
hope i could help in someway



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.


a few years back i had a big new list and now guess waht i found again :wink:
the list

and you can see the guy made a file for(thunderbird and so one) so you copy the adresses in the line and send one file to all of them, nice idear.
the email adresses are from 31.03.2010, 21:02 so i think they are valid :).
please dont hate me now :frowning:
I hope you can work with this german page, if you have a question just ask,
greetings from Germany.



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.


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

ok i know i will regret this but i make a list now… :smiley:
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 :slight_smile:
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 :wink:
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 :wink:

ok thats it for now…

This is just the first step i will give you more ;).
You can see that i only jump in the list but i will get the information coming but i dont have the time to make all in one big step this here was about 4 hours + work so… :smiley:
mainly because firefox crashed and my work was destroyed… hate the new version so much.

MfG( “MfG” or “mfg”, German language abbreviation for mit freundlichem Gruß or mit freundlichen Grüßen, with the meaning of Best Regards, very common in electronic communication ) by the way i love the Wikipedia :smiley:


I’ve gone through the links and included the ones that I thought were most relevant. I didn’t add all of the new programs that were listed because I am trying to limit this to programs that can scan for malware. Thus Spywareblaster and pure firewalls won’t be included in the list.

Let me know if you like the new setup and if you think I’ve included enough information. I didn’t want it to become too cluttered.


Thank you for compiling this list of anti-malware products. I thought that perhaps you may want to add Protector Plus from Proland Software. Their web site home page is: or .


Thanks, I’ve updated the list.


I go through the article you have written and found very quite helpful for this to Report Malware or False Positives to Multiple Antivirus Vendors thanks for posting this info.
