PFPortChecker.exe has Malware

I was  setting up Remote Desktop at a clients yesterday and tested the ports with PFPortChecker.exe. After installing it, the Panda Anti-virus alerted us of suspicious Malware. I let the program run as I would expect a Port Scanner to be suspicious but the program added the Search Conduit Toolbar to the Chrome Browser.

This product is from http://portforward.com/ which is a very useful site but, sadly, is connected to unethical advertisers. The worst part is the program said the ports where open, which is what I wanted, but they in fact weren’t!
