Ultimate Puzzles Dogs 3

Notes on Security

I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found 1 hit (Antiy-AVL) from 59 antimalware engines. I’ve only see this one yesterday before when we were given the Ultimate Puzzles: Cats 3. All the better known and more reliable antimalware engines have given it a clean bill of health so, it’s very likely to be a false positive.

The downloaded executable ‘may’ include some low level adware that only opens your browser ‘once’ to Falcoware’s home page after the game has installed and also places four shortcuts onto your desktop (which can be safely deleted once the game has been installed).

The installation DOES NOT inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to Falcoware’s home page following the games installation, it earns Falcoware games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. Once you’ve installed the game, there are no more browser redirections. This is because Falcoware removed their installer over a year ago (that installer would show an advert for a game and then open your browser each time you played and then closed the game down.)
