Iobit sercurity 360, 3rd worst dowload of '09


Recommended Posts

Hi mkenshin10!


I watched the Cnet video.


There is a definite misrepresentation in the summary.


Iobit has never blamed its users for the issue...


Iobit has accepted that by the submission policy they had, ANYBODY was allowed to submit samples to them and that they weren't careful enough in screening them.


Anybody... not their own users! If anybody can download a software(for free), than anyboody can be a 360 user, and anybody can report/submit samples by old Iobit policy!!!


This was a misrepresentation.


You can see the Iobit blog also.


Thank you for your post!!!

Good Point


But then what would you expect from an organization that continues to rate Norton as the #1 security program, year after year after year.....Opinions are like a%%holes-everybody has one.Only difference is CNET's are paid for...or was that PC Mag :-? Well,you get the point.

Most,if not all of those ratings are bought and paid for.I think users need to try different programs to see which protects them best.We don't all surf the web the same way,so what's good for me may not be good for you,and the reverse.GOTD will offer up Online Armor++ on Friday if anyone would like to try it.

The problem was - to be precise - that IObit was accused of using (without proper authorisation) the database of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) in IObit Security 360. One line of defense was that users did submit threats that were not entirely above board. That is what the video is about.


But all that is now beside the point: the question is if Iobit creates good programs. The answer is a very personal one.
