Please use ShareX instead.

It does the same thing as puush with notable differences:

1. It has more features

2. It's open source. You're downloading from github.

3. It uses imgur for the image hosting. puush servers are flaky.

4. puush got hacked earlier this year. Their webserver was compromised and malware was added to the installer. If you're computer was running and puush was running in the tray, you automatically installed the malware. There's no guarantee that your PC is clean right now if you were affected by this even if you installed r100 afterwards.

5. Puush hasn't had a release since version r100 (which removed the malware) which means:
 a. there's still no way to turn off automatic updates
 b. they still haven't implemented any sha verification or code signing which likely means this can happen again.

6. It's really ambiguous how puush is making money since they have bandwidth/infrastructure costs. You probably are the product being sold.

tl;dr stop fucking using puush.

Ok, Thanks for information.
In the case of software for companies, it is worth to commission an IT audit once in a while. The deconstruction and analysis of the processes hidden in IT projects is key to tracking any problems. Therefore, the audit and IT consulting procedures are a great starting point.
