Iobit Uninstaller reported by Norton as containing unwanted PUA.superfluss code

Recommended Posts

Dear Forum and IObit teams, since a couple of days, Norton reports Iobit Unistaller (Pro) as containing the unwanted PUA.superfluss code and quarantines it. Can you please work with Norton to fix this? Many thanks.

Iobit uninstaller infected with pua.superfluss per Norton. Same here, too. I note that this same spyware was reported by Microsoft some time ago, but at that point Iobit denied it, saying it was a false positive. A search for superfluss reveals that it really is a virus. Norton deleted my iobit programme as a result. This time, Iobit need to take the report seriously, especially when it's a costly programme that currently can't be used and people's subscriptions continue to count down.

Here is IObit's customer service response, I am testing it as we speak:

Dear Customer,

Thanks for contacting us.

The false detection should have been solved now.

Please download and install the latest IObit Uninstaller v11.5.0.4 from the link below to see whether is still an issue. https://cdn.iobit.com/dl/iobituninstaller.exe 

Thanks for your time and patience.


Kind regards,
