Malwarebytes Acquires AdwCleaner | Advanced Mobile Spy Software
As many of you have already seen, last week I blogged that we would be getting more aggressive in the detection of Potentially Unwanted Programs, or "PUPs" as we call them. I'd like to announce that we're advancing that mission with the acquisition of AdwCleaner. AdwCleaner is a popular product, installed over 200 million times, and used by consumers, technicians, and enterprises all over the globe to remove adware, browser hijackers, other potentially wanted programs, and more. As I write this, it averages more than 200,000 downloads per day. Jérôme and Corentin, the two engineers that have maintained the project from very early on, will be joining the Malwarebytes team. Short term, we will work to give the product a facelift and enhance its detection ability. Over a longer period, we hope to learn from and integrate the technology into our flagship product, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. AdwCleaner will remain free as a standalone product. Consumers
