Iobit Malwarefighter Pro Giveaway.

;D Hi. I am so glad have a Program Cis, that actually works, when it comes to stopping malware.I noticed a giveaway on Wilders forum that indicated until today at some point, you could get a licence for the new program designed to replace the 360 version.Its supposed to have loads of improvements…noteably improved scanners and realtime in the pro version.

Me being me, thought give it a test…why not!!.I executed a couple of trojan exes from Malware domain within Sandboxie, and Nada, Zero, Zilch!.I then did a right click scan with Cavs, Hitman pro. Superantispyware 5, and Malwarebytes. Guess what. They all picked up both Trojans.

Well as its new,improved…supposedly, you would have thought it would have caught at least one of the malware.The old 360 version was no better than this last time i tested it…and yes its only a couple i tested but as the other scanners all found it, i thought…no need for this…as much use as a chocolate fireguard, or an ashtray on a motorbike.

Its over there on wilders if anyone wants to test it out…But Iobit are getting hammered over there for pinching Malwarebytes Data base, as usual nothing changes over there then.

I never use an iObit product as they’ve acted as thieves of MBAM.

So do I. Now it’s difficult to trust them.

I even drop their defragmentation tool…

Don’t touch any Chinese product. You never know what’s being sent.

That’s a bit drastic isn’t it?

I don’t think it is Eric.
One never knows what’s behind the wall (both metaphorically and literally).
If a government agent enters Iobit’s offices and says: “I want to know who watches naked men pictures”, what would the answer be?
Vladimir Putin couldn’t care less.
But the Politburo of the Communist Party of China…?

That assumes Iobit’s software already has some dormant big brother module in it waiting to be activated. That’s a grave accusation which requires proof. Without proof it is nothing but conjecture and prejudice.

SG65, your comments are getting a bit derogatory. Also, most malware today is not from the Chinese, as it once was, but from N.A.

Conjecture? Ask MBAM.
Prejudice? Ask Google.

That is true but that was downright intellectual theft and not the big brother stuff you are talking about/

Prejudice? Ask Google.
The burden of proof lies in your court. I want some solid evidence that Chinese software has dormant big brother modules. Other than that it is conjecture and prejudice.
SG65, your comments are getting a bit derogatory.
My comments are valid. As you would adknowledge if you were familiar with the history of China (and hence understand its present).
Also, most malware today is not from the Chinese, as it once was, but from N.A.
If N.A. is not Narcotics Anonymous, then please specify.

The burden of proof lies in their court.

The sheer fact that Chinese society in the past and to a lesser extend these days has a questionable track record when it comes to human rights and individual freedoms does not necessarily extend to Chinese software being a government’s drones. Now that would give a whole new meaning to cyber warfare. I don’t recall having seen reports by Western security agencies warning for Chinese software across the board.

Let's wait for John's explanation.

That shows there is such thing as cyber warfare but not that Chinese software as such is compromised as your accusation implies.

I was under the impression most countries would recognize N.A. as North America (USA, Canada, Mexico), when talking in terms of location, especially in terms of geographical location.

That’s what I assumed.

Yes it does.
Now that would give a whole new meaning to cyber warfare.
Oh Eric, [i]yes it does[/i].
I don't recall having seen reports by Western security agencies warning for Chinese software across the board.
Of course they wouldn't.

I don't imply such a thing. It is only a matter of principle. I can understand Russians and deal with them (and trust them). I can understand Chinese and deal with them; but I can't trust them. Different reality, culture, history. Do you know they still remember the Opium Wars as if they had been yesterday? And the boxer rebellion? Different reality Eric.

From an European perspective it’s not that obvious. In fact we don’t even see Mexico as North America; They speak Spanish, so it’s Latin (South) America. Post colonial trauma? So be it. I do hate Political Correctness.

Go back to school. Mexico certainly is not in South America.

First of all: Of course Mexico geographical lies in North America. But also of course Mexico culturally belongs to the Latin. This is so simple.
Second of all Iobit Malwarefighter is total ■■■■. Maybe not everything from China is bad but this one surely is. This is also so simple.
