    I belong to a lot of networks. At least once a week I check different offers from different companies. Well it seems like randomly some offers make my anti-virus pop off. I use avast and its ok I used to use panda but made the switch a few weeks ago.

    Usually it is a first page submit or zip/email short offer. I don't understand why they are marked as malware and I am sure someone here knows why this happens.

    I won't be naming any places I found them cuz it may not be the cpa companies fault.

    I think some anti-virus/malware developers are marking various offer/locker links as attacks, but don't know why's that.

    Some CPA offers, especially if have been around for few weeks in the same CPA Network, might have been promoted with spamming/scamming techniques.

    So people and competitors might mass flag the link and report it as virus, malware or alike.

    It's ridiculous that an email submit could be considered as a virus: there is nothing to download.
    This is a clear evidence that the link has been reported as such.

    If you have same offer with another network, try that.
    Chances are that link has not been reported (yet).

    Yeah I agree it is a lot of the times false.

    But early this year I was infected with the zero access malware. So I started to do research on stuff and I was really surprised on how people get infected java exploits and all kinds of shit. :(

    I believe I was infected when I clicked on a pron pic in tumblr.
