I think that 'Ultra Surf' is not malware, and I explain this on wilderssecurity.com thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=252789
 
Yes, this thread is in 'privacy software' section, and is called: 'Browse Anonymously Online - Free & Safe Proxy Ways Against Internet Censorship'.
 
New, still HOT thread for you! I think ...

Ultrasurf was not and now is not a malicious software, it's an anti-filter and bypasser software, I'm using it right now, it has no problem .

Perhaps it's time to reconsider Ultrasoft.

See post #106, you can download the proof near the bottom of that post.

Look also for Bensec and MakePB explanations on page 7, here: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=237184&page=7 
 
... and my post with link for Ultra Surf download: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1537788&postcount=4 
 
UltraSurf is perfectly legit and safe to use, no doubt.

It's a one hop proxy that turns off SSL and contacts banks, financial institutions and government agencies supposedly to confuse a Chinese firewall.  The only conclusion I can come to for turning off SSL and contacting a bank or a government agency is a man in the middle.  Tracing a one hop proxy would be insignificant compared to the competition.    A one hop proxy is probably why it is fast.  Setting up the necessary servers might be time consuming and expensive.  I have no interest in confusing a Chinese firewall.

I don't run a proxy so I don't have a horse in this race.  If you can read and comprehend those threads and still believe it's safe, knock yourself out.  AVG, Previx and I forgot the other one, are flagging it as malware. 

Posting in a security forum that Ultrasoft is safe seems irresponsible.  At best it is controversial.  At the worst it is malware.  There are better and safer choices.
