By taking the software from someone else for the purpose of de-compiling and manipulation of that code, you will enter very "murky waters" at best, depending on the license the software is published under.



So far as I can tell, it looks to be in public domain:
https://github.com/hannob/superfishy

If it's only for your own personal use there is probably little to worry about.

I would think so, plus 'Superfish' is an infamous malware, and I doubt its originator would want to claim it...frankly I'd be surprised if its even has a copyright or trademark or whatever.

rentacoder is the one I know, though I don't really understand what you are interested in or if it is legal..

Thanks for the link, I'll give it a try. I'm using XP Pro. The CA creeps have a certificate store embedded in the OS that they are no longer maintaining, and is now pretty much useless. As my Chrome/Chromium-based browsers use this store, I am blockaded from about 30% of the internet, via four or five different sorts of certificate errors. Not sure what your concerns are regarding legality. Never heard any claims that Superfish is illegal, and since someone has archived it (Github?), I suspect its public domain, and since its for my home PC, I would assert its legal enough to suit me. If adware/spyware companies can stick Superfish on peoples PC without their knowledge or consent, then I'd claim the right to install a modified version on mine. Not much different than businesses using an MITM proxy on their computers.

I need a coder or programmer to take a program like 'Superfish', rip out the adware/spyware components, and leave me with a functional MITM with bogus uber-certificate, to restore functionality to my chrome/chromium-based browsers. Since this is more involved than a snack, and is a custom paid job rather than a suggestion, I assume here is not the place to advertise, but maybe someone can point me in the right direction?

My probably not so easy idea:
Create some sort of program to filter out the foistware/PUPs from the CNET downloader (or the countless imitators like it) so one can get stuff from such sites without having to try to uninstall the host of malware that comes with it!
