Babylon Software - False identification

Recommended Posts

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I am writing you in regards to your false identification of our software - Babylon 10 as a threat. Currently you are removing many files that are required for our software to run.

By doing that you are misleading our users and not allowing them to use the software they downloaded for free or paid for.

 

I am not sure whether you are aware of the fact that Babylon Software LTD. has purchased the translation business in its entirety from Babylon LTD.. Babylon Software LTD. focuses on using a clean software solely for translation purposes, which comes with no bundles or search properties in any way or form. All of our installation files are also signed with our new signature.

 

If you wish to re-inspect our software, you can download it from our site at http://www.babylon.com. If you still find anything improper, we would be happy to hear about it and correct it.

 

We believe that the aforementioned is caused due to a misunderstanding on your end, as you were not informed of the modifications that were recently made in our translation software, and that you will correct the false identification ASAP.

 

Best regards,

 

Ran Eyal

Head of Marketing and Media

Dear Moderator,

 

I expected a more detailed response to my query. With that said:

 

You have quoted a link to a software called WOT - Web of Trust. The negative comments from it's users seem to stop around October 2014, when Babylon Software LTD. purchased the translation software from Babylon LTD. As I have explained, Babylon Software LTD. focuses on using a clean software solely for translation purposes, which comes with no bundles or search properties in any way or form. All of our installation files are also signed with our new signature.

 

If you wish to re-inspect our software, you can download it from our site at http://www.babylon.com. If you still find anything improper, we would be happy to hear about it and correct it.

I have just completed my own inspection of this and HerdProtect also shows it to be suspicious.

Hello Ran,

 

Due to Babylon Toolbar no longer being bundled with it, we at SUPERAntiSpyware have decided to disable our Unwanted Program detection of Babylon Software.
