What is up with these antivirus app scares and lost business ?

Are these antivirus companies dumb ?

Even desktop antivirus like Esoft thinks that Airpush, Startapp, Minimob etc are virus.

I use all three of them (only for in app ads). I have been at the receiving end of reviews
giving me one star and saying the app is a virus. And these users gained this particular wisdom
from those antivirus apps who have made a nice business out of scaring people.

What the f*ck is wrong with these antivirus companies ? And why aren’t these mobile
ad networks not picking up the issue with these scaremongering hucksters.

Plain and simple the anti-virus companies want to get paid off by AD companies.
