Congrats on this conclusion, Marcin (et al.). I suspected a public apology from IOBit would be impossible, but this is equally humiliating for them.
On a side note, I notified TrendMicro that IOBit is stealing all the functionality of HijackThis in their product.
(Wow, I never thought I could post here along with the author of HijackThis! )
Now that we know IOBit stole MBAM's database AND HijackThis's functionality, wrapping them in "IOBit Security 360" (or whatever)... what other things could they have stolen too? :S
