Yes, I did receive feedback the same day that Win.Adware.Softpulse-215 had been removed and I can confirm that all the others mentioned below except for Swf.Exploit.CVE_2015_5122-1 have been removed, so I’ll try to pursue that last one.

But now those three files are being identified as Win.Trojan.Agent-953878. Should I resubmit the file with that infection name?
