All2MP3 was a legitimate piece of software. Not well-established, but one of those freeware obscure apps.I rather use established and well known companies to convert any media into any output media, and nothing like any2mp3 things that are made for one reason: advertising income.
Still unsure wether to just trust that the system is fine (malware bytes says it is).
All2MP3 remains a very good utility app.
For some reason that is theirs alone, the software developers for All2MP3 have chosen to "package it" into some kind of "dmg-based installer" that will install not only the All2MP3 utility, but a bunch of other garbage as well -- adware, malware, etc.
I found that the website from which this is downloading is
Again, DO NOT download All2MP3 from this site.
Alternative way to get All2MP3:
If you download ALL2MP3 from Tucows, however, all you get is the "ALL2MP3" app itself, and NONE of the MacKeeper garbage. The URL I verified this with a few minutes ago is:
This downloads a ".zip" file, which when un-archived, yields only the All2MP3 app itself, ready-to-use.
This happened to me as well. I would reccomend XLD which also can convert to Apple lossless was and other formats!Ugh. Just tried to update my ancient All2MP3 and was suspicious of all the crap included. Just as I was about to click 'install' good ol' ClamXAV chimed in with:
File Name: All2MP3.pkg
Infection Name: Trojan.OSX.OpinionSpy
So, straight to the trash bin!
Any recommendations for a good free/cheap MP3 converter to replace this naughty software?
Update: I decided to run a full ClamXAV scan - glad I did! - and it found the following extra files...
File Name-->Infection Name
Of concern is the fact I rejected/cancelled the "Survey" component when it 'asked' to be installed.
That is the developer's site, and it is safe to download it from there.I found that the website from which this is downloading is
This is an older version of All2MP3.If you download ALL2MP3 from Tucows, however, all you get is the "ALL2MP3" app itself, and NONE of the MacKeeper garbage. The URL I verified this with a few minutes ago is:
