IOBit Theft Conclusion

50 posts in this topic

(Wow, I never thought I could post here along with the author of HijackThis! ;):D )

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

WAIT IOBIT STOLE TRENDMICRO's definitions AS WELL!!!!!! :(

IoBit tests were ridicoluos, they compared regular antispyware/antimalware with rogue LOL.

I'm with you and I hope they will apologize even if it seems they are able to deny the obvious.

Hold your heads up Marcin, Bruce and all MalwareBytes' Corporation!

All the best

One test, some guy compared it to Cyberdefender. LOL!!!!

Hi Marcin,

Very good news indeed!

We often think transnational problems are a nightmare to cope with. I appreciate that Malwarebytes and yourself perfectly dealt with this and that the anti-malware community was behind you all to push.

Alas we need bad news to see a united community but I'm delighted to have gotten such outcome. :D

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.

This just shows that the consumer must be careful and do lots of research before deciding on the software they install at home

Guys, please lets keep any comments about ethnicity or location out of this.

We do not want to offend any particular group of people who have nothing to do with these accusations.

WOT is giving Iobit more and more negative ratings, 97 ethenic Issues comments. 0-o Even the most trusted members of the Iobit forums have left Iobit. Iobit is definetely losing reputation. A good company gone bad. ;) The database is not like what it used to now since it orginally deleted all of it's definitions. Now relying on Iobit for protection is slim. Cheaters don't win. :D

Well said, Baz. The point you made is obviously good and valid, but you may be concerning yourself unnecessarily.

WOT actually has 97 'Ethical issues' comments, not 97 'Ethnic issues' comments. Ethnicity is not mentioned at all on the WOT website. So don't worry, Baz. Everything is cool here at the moment. And, hopefully, it will stay that way. :)

Aah, I see. That explains it. I thought you'd gone all paranoid on us for a while there, Baz. LOL. :D

By the way, AVZ is excellent. I use it all the time. I really like its guick process scan with the extened monitoring driver installed. Very useful tool. :D

I suppose justice has been served, would've like to have seen Malwarebytes get a bit of cash though ;)

I agree, I hope TrendMicro will take the necessary steps as well.

Congratulations MBAM team :) .

If IObit never apology to THEIR OWN CUSTOMER and then apology to MBAM. Just contact a lawyer and send a letter to Hu Jintao and go to International Court (ICCt).

Hello MBAM, I'm kinda disappointed. Is this all you can do?

This is unacceptable and should be followed up with felony criminal charges. If a person can get 5 years prison for downloading music, then employees in this company should get comparable charges as well.

I am so sick of big companies doing criminal activities and only getting slapped with fines. The average citizen gets jail time for downloading a song.

It's been a while, but it's still chances of getting millions of money here! They've done something criminal, and I can't see why you guys doesn't try to get money of it? You guys could get better facilities, much more money, and you guys can do everything you want with the money. Call it "free money" ! :)

Well -

At least Fred has another cleaner in his package that now removes 100% of the stuff IObit leaves behind -

I cleaned mine up a long time ago and the cleaner still found one hidden (spy) file !!!! :)

Yup. I have designed (not coded) a little tool we called BitRemover and it removes all debris of uninstalled IObit's programs.

More info and download here or here.

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I have been using Malwarebytes program for awhile now. And it really has helped my PC alot! :)

And was quite surprised to what I was reading in regards to this matter with IOBit.

Interesting though, Cnet still has the IOBit programs listed in the download section.

Has anyone ever mentioned this problem/situation with Cnet?

Yeah...this discussion is kind of dead. The more we talk about IObit, the more they talk about us.
