Network Stumbler Comes with Malware

Negative Comment by DavidJz
about NetStumbler Aug 2013

Just tried downloading and installing Network Stumbler. It came with a large set of malware downloads including a downloader active agent. Seems like it was pretending to be a zip opener. No permission was asked, and no options were presented to opt-out of the extra crudware.

In any case, cleanup required uninstalling at least three programs, running a Windows System restore to a previous date, and then running MalwareBytes, in order to completely remove all traces of malware.

This was an experience of the worst kind of misleading BS crapware.
