    "GOOD PRODUCT"

    November 14, 2009  |   By skudo12

    Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

    Pros

    Not a resource hog, great security and very fast program.

    Cons

    No cons, just wanted to say to malwarebytes fan to stop believing rumors if it is not yet proven. If it is proven, how can you trust MALWAREBYTES as a security software if a company could steal their database?

    "IOBIT UNETHICAL"

    November 13, 2009  |   By lenrique50

    Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

    Pros

    Good if you need a crook

    Cons

    Who wants a crooked company "protecting" their PC??

    Summary

    IOBIT was caught redhanded stealing confidential information from Malwarebytes.org. If they can do this, who knows what they are doing with the information on your computer? Don't trust them! Ethics is not in their vocabulary.

    Updated on Nov 13, 2009

    ...Don't let the IOBIT staff mislead you with their "good" ratings! ..It doesn't change the facts that their company is unethical.

    "IObit Security 360 Stole Malwarebytes Database"

    November 13, 2009  |   By nirmalbalajicheats

    Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

    Pros

    PERFECT STUPIDITY......GREAT JOB.....

    Cons

    IObit Security 360 application detects a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware key generator as Don?t.Steal.Our.Software.A, a name specifically created and used by Malwarebytes.

    Summary

    Malwarebytes accuses Chinese antivirus vendor IObit of stealing its intellectual property and threatens to pursue legal action. Despite the solid evidence presented by Malwarebytes, IObit denies any wrongdoing and plans to respond through its lawyers.

    Malwarebytes Corporation is a US-based company developing several security-oriented applications. Its flagship and most popular product is called Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM), which comes in both free and commercial flavors and is particularly renowned for its ability to remove rogueware.

    In a post published on its official blog yesterday, Malwarebytes takes aim at IObit for allegedly stealing its signatures. "Malwarebytes has recently uncovered evidence that a company called IOBit based in China is stealing and incorporating our proprietary database and intellectual property into their software," the company announces.

    It all started with a report that the IObit Security 360 application detects a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware key generator as Don?t.Steal.Our.Software.A, a name specifically created and used by Malwarebytes. "Why would IOBit detect a keygen for our software and refer to it using our database name?" the company asked.

    In order to put their suspicions to the test, Malwarebytes researchers crafted a dummy malware sample and an accompanying signature, which they called Rogue.AVCleanSweepPro. Under normal circumstances, this sample shouldn't have been blocked by any other product rather than MBAM, but after about two weeks, IObit started detecting the fake file under exactly the same name.

    In addition, Malwarebytes also created a benign file and modified it to particularly match their definition for a real piece of malware called Adware.NaviPromo. No antivirus product out of the 41 ones listed on VirusTotal detect this dummy file, but IObit Security 360 does, again using the same name.

    The accusations don't stop here and Malwarebytes even goes as far as to say that "During the course of our investigation, we uncovered additional evidence that IObit may have stolen the proprietary databases of other security vendors as well." The company demands that IObit removes the allegedly stolen signatures from its database and for its software to be unlisted from software download sites for terms of service violations.

    IObit dismisses Malwarebytes' allegations and describes them as "malicious rumors for hyping itself." The vendor explains that its malware samples came from many sources, including independent ones and that under these circumstances, it?s hard to avoid errors such as name duplication.

    "For the sake of avoiding dispute and possible problems, we have deleted all disputed items in our database temporarily, and have updated IObit Security 360?s database," it says. The company also notes that it is currently investigating the signatures declared stolen by Malwarebytes and plans to release a legal statement later today in order to prove that no intellectual property theft has been committed.

    "THIS SOFTWARE IS BETTER THAN MALWAREBYTES!!!!"

    November 12, 2009  |   By tbbabq

    Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

    Pros

    Everything about it is great, it comes with more features than "Malwarebytes" and has better detection, and takes up less system resources.

    Cons

    None, GREAT software, has lots of potential.

    Summary

    My only con is not against the program or the company itself, my cons are with Malwarebytes, I think they are taking this too far....if IOBit was using their detection database, then why has IOBit detected things Malwarebytes never did? And this dates around the time they were being blamed for stealing signatures. Personally I think Malwarebytes is about to ruin a big company for starting these horrible rumors. If IOBit says it was submitted through a user, then dangit I am going to believe them. I will continue to use IOBit Security 360 for as long as it exists.....Malwarebytes has already been uninstalled from my system.

    "Excellent!"

    November 11, 2009  |   By warlover2

    Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

    Pros

    Good detection, both heuristic and database related. Very attractive interface. Browser guards, Window updates, and fast scanning. Cleans like Systemcare by Iobit,too. Rising PC Doctor is another good program very similar to Iobit Security 360.

    Cons

    Possibly intellectual property theft or a similar charge being made by Malwarebytes. Go with Rising PC Doctor if they discontinue Iobit 360. It has all Iobit 360 has. Get it at www.majorgeeks.com because I do not think CNET carries PC Doctor.

    Summary

    An excellent program but may not be around too much longer due to alleged theft. I cannot believe a good company like Iobit would intentionally do it, however. Some users sent malware submissions by Malwarebytes to Iobit is what Iobit is claiming but Iobit should have known better than to use them. Iobit should do it's own work.
