I found a website and its new antivirus product PlaceboAV while searching information about malware. Website says “An unbelievable feature-set packed into just 56KB of executable! Lordy, it’s a miracle! And it’s free!”.
I downloaded it but not tried. VirusTotal says it is clean.
Is there anyone who tried and has idea about PlaceboAV?
“Lordy it’s a miracle”, “protect your computer-just not very much”, and “It’s the fantasic anti-virus solution that’s super-fast and absolutely reliable… because it does nothing at all.” are actual quotes from the site, so not exactly subtle IF you read all the text. LOL. But no intent to disparage aXes for bringing it to our attention, and hope he is laughing with us now.
Yes! For first time I visit the website, was so. I wanted to ask an opinion to the forum.
Then I read the article one more time.
IMO, author of this website wants to draw attention to detection problem with this irony. He means that “you can use PlaceboAV. You do not need any big sized AVs. PlaceboAV prevents nothing. But at least, it does not hug system resources. You can feel safe and relaxed yourself as a result of Placebo effect! If this is not enough, you can buy PlaceboAV Pro for double effect!”
