    You could possibly put it to the developers of DetectX. They’ve been pretty good in response to contacts.

    Best advice is to remove the app and use one of the other many clean apps instead. Who knows what that app is leaving behind on your hard drive, just remove it and be safe.

    Mac Duplicate Cleaner is a suspicious computer utility software made specifically for Mac systems. It can be installed on the computer even without user’s consent. Attacker usually bundled this rogue program to a number of freeware and shareware currently deployed on the internet. Browser redirects is also used to drive user into promotional website that entices them to install Mac Duplicate Cleaner. Said website will impose various deceiving tricks in convincing visitors to download and install the application.

How do I allow DetectX to ignore its Duplicate Cleaner's findings so as not to have it flagged?
    I found this info on the DetectX Support page https://s3.amazonaws.com/sqwarq.com/...User_Guide.pdf
    SEARCH (function in preferences)
    Currently, the Search preferences only control the Whitelist function.
    Use the Report... button to report items to Sqwarq Support if you believe they are false positives.
    Use the Reset... button to remove items previously whitelisted. This will result in a Search function starting and any of the (previously) whitelisted items found will be reported in the Search results.

    I might try this myself.
