Another Incorrect detection of our Comment Bot Software at Virus Total by Palo Alto Networks AV

Dear Support,

This email contains a request to further investigate our Comment Bot application for any harmful software.

The reason for this request is because your Antivirus company has joined Virus Total and your Antivirus detects our application as harmful.

This damages our reputation and we would like to get in touch to resolve this together.

Below a documented brief explanation about our Comment Bot application.

File Functionality: The Comment Bot from Dimension Bots is a bot program that automates the posting of comments. Users can setup the bot program to search for keywords and then post their comments, this way increasing their accounts exposure rates.

Explanation of the code in the .exe file:
We are using the .exe as an updater and runner of our Java code, which is delivered together with the .exe. As Java code is quite difficult to obfuscate and protect from reverse engineering, we added some protection layers on top of it. (We can't provide more info here.)

(Note that all this code is just added to make it more difficult for people to reverse engineer and steal our code.)

If you need any more information, feel free to contact us.
