Maybe you should deactivate the link to the UltraSurf website.

This program hijacks the browser in android. Even after uninstalling it, when I tried to open the browser, the browser tried to connect to the ultrasurf website.

Yes there are really conflicting views of UltraSurf! A article from networkworld 2009, (http://www.networkworld.com/news/2009/073109-blackhat-ultrasurf.html ) suggests that the software is somehow a part of the chinese information surveillance..

Wired (if you live in the U.S., you probably know already what that is) wrote an article about the guys who made UltraSurf two months ago.

This isn't really proof for either side of the argument, but I think this is interesting enough to point out.

I talk with Ola and he was ok to re-add the link to UltraSurf, BUT WE STILL WARN THE USERS THAT THERE ARE SUSPICIONS THAT IT MAY BE MALWARE (his words).

So we have to "absolve" this app for "lack of evidence"... maybe it's correct... what does the jury say? :S

I scanned the installation file of UltraSurf with VirusTotal and it reported positive results from 5 antivirus!

Here the scan result: http://www.virustotal.com/it/analisis/a598c451e2cf72b3519804147f9539b46e33ebdc7479adcc78e450a32c8c4bac-1279815124

Source of the recommendation to delete ultrasurf and to use VBA32 antivirus:
This recommendation comes from SteveTX, dated with March 25th, 2009, 11:58 AM see http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=237184 , or see also http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1514487&postcount=106 (dated July 30th, 2009, 12:10 PM) .
If one more exactly researches with Google, whether Ultrasurf is a malware, one gets very contradictory statements.
Voices, that Ultrasurf is no malware, you can read for example on http://forum.sysinternals.com/topic20299.html .

Really good application

I don't understand why some guys tell this is a virus or a malware can someone explain me.
The first that told me that VBA32 says this is a virus is a moron Every Antivirus can have false positive.
heuristic detection can make something strange detect as a virus.

I am not saying that Ultrasurf is NOT a virus. I just wants to know real facts
If this is a virus what does it do ?
The "proxy" nature of this tool can make something looks like strange

Does VBA32 detect that and wants to prevent user or is there a real treat ?

I would suggest something along the lines of what happens with WOT or Google - if a user clicks to download or visit the site - a warning page explaining the situation appears - and the user has to accept (a checkbox) a disclaimer, and then click a separate button to proceed to the download website.

Therefore you have full disclosure, and if the user decides to continue, that is their decision (the consequences rest on their head alone).

Elvar: I get your point and we have an item in our todo that we should implement some kind of warning thingy for apps that are known to be malware and so on. But it is still very relevant to keep the item in our DB for people who google for "Alternative to Ultrasurf" and so on.

bahh, sorry, sometimes it would be nice to have a read back to you feature like on youtube :)

But yes, mark the header with red instead of blue or something as a warning.
