foxkyu,

Yes, the Challenge does not require you to deposit any real BTC. You get 100 virtual BTC credited to your account. Nevertheless, the rewards are very much real Smiley
Oh, and thank you for the analysis. You can browse the app source on https://github.com/quedexnet/quedexapp (and run the app from it).

Patatas,

We hope so - and any more feedback from you is welcome!

Here's the results for the windows app

We're quite sure that what virustotal has found are false-positives. The app was compiled on a clean install of original Windows 7. You may compile our app by yourself (from the source) and check that virustotal will give the same warnings as for our file (which will prove that we didn't "add" anything). Anyone wants to help us with the audit?

We also found that:

The Riskware.Win32.Crypter.dpjgbl is a false positive - it's detected in a number of popular programs (like GnuPG version 1.4.19, which is included in our binary, from http://ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/gnupg/gnupg-1.4.19.tar.gz ), cf. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/ff4979980b00773c414c3cd5571eae8cc3916d3607e9621400f0302f1e138882/analysis/ ).
The WS.Reputation.1 thing means "Symantec doesn't actually see any virus" (cf. https://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2010-051308-1854-99 ).

Nevertheless, thanks for the check.

edit: Please also check out the latest analysis of this file, it's free of the false positive "TrojanSpy.Python.l": https://www.virustotal.com/ro/file/05b74652e45aad80f008824c3b8756b69ad8326280f0ca6da4bbc13a64958ca0/analysis/

edit2: We've released a new version of the app, which uses GnuPG 2, and thus got rid of the false positive "Riskware.Win32.Crypter.dpjgbl": https://www.virustotal.com/ro/file/398cae74791c9e30dbef713bbc76f07ff12cb4db9ce585cfeb4c2098fcafa673/analysis/1439367417/

edit3: False alarms problem have been solved in the new version https://quedex.net/trading_app: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/398cae74791c9e30dbef713bbc76f07ff12cb4db9ce585cfeb4c2098fcafa673/analysis/

Great and original exchange. I especially enjoyed the futures trading feature.

That's a feature that most digital currency exchanges should introduce.
