Am I Just Malware Paranoid?

Postby Saltrams » Tue Mar 03, 2020 6:12 pm

Firstly; apologies for having duplicated a post that I placed elsewhere about a month ago. Lots of people viewed the post but nobody replied and I'm still having the issue.
A few times recently (about 10) I have had a notification box pop up when starting my PC (Win10 64 bit. Also have 7004T NAS with latest ADM update 3.4.6.RDF3)
The box was this: (but recently it has changed a little although essentially the problems remain)

and it raises several questions, does it not?

Why is EZSync spelled "Easy Sync"? Why does it say "Relaese (sic) Notes"? Why is there no branding/logo/whatever to even suggest it originates from Asustor? Am I just paranoid?

I know that English isn't these guys' first language and I don't want to be snooty about that but it does have a lot of the warning signs of things that ain't what they should be, doesn't it?

Did you install AES (ASUSTOR EZ Sync) on your PC? The notification is asking you to upgrade it.
And, yes, it's an apparent fault on "Relaese". The most efficient way to ask them revise it is to send a support ticket to asustor directly. https://support.asustor.com/

Gosh, sorry, it didn't occur to me that anyone would think I hadn't installed EZ Sync. Yes, I have installed it (I don't find it to be useful or user friendly but that's another post topic).
You have the pop-up box too? Have you successfully clicked on the update option?

I installed this app on my PC (I still use Win7 ;) ). However I did not see the pop-up window. I guess that my AES is the latest one.
Did you mean you cannot download it even if you click "Download Now"?

Oh I haven't clicked on it - I'm malware paranoid, see? Like I wouldn't click links in emails I don't trust. I'm not a "let's see what happens, how bad can it be?" person :shock: I just thought it was so clumsy & weird that I thought I would enquire what others thought.
