From Agnitum LTD. Today:

Dear Reader,
As you remember, following the termination of Agnitum operations Outpost updates and technical support were stopped on January 9, 2017.

Mindful of numerous requests from Outpost users we are extending the free migration campaign period until February 28!

This is the last chance: exchange an active Outpost license for Kaspersky Internet Security at no cost. The offer ends on February 28, 2017.

On March 1, 2017, the Agnitum website and tech support form will be deactivated.

As before, the products taking part in the exchange program are Outpost Antivirus Pro, Outpost Firewall Pro, Outpost Security Suite Pro, Outpost Network Security.

PLEASE NOTE! The migration can be only performed once. In case you’ve already exchanged your Outpost license, please ignore this message.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – October 19, 2016 – Malwarebytes™, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, today announced the acquisition of AdwCleaner, one of the world’s most frequently downloaded tools for removing potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), adware, toolbars and other unwanted software.

Consumers and businesses download AdwCleaner more than 200,000 times per day, making it one of the most downloaded products on many sites. Installed around 200 million times, AdwCleaner has proven effective against bloatware, questionable software and specific types of malware.

The AdwCleaner story mirrors that of Malwarebytes in many ways. Founded in 2011 by three 17 year-old French students, AdwCleaner quickly grew in popularity over the years. Jérôme Boursier and Corentin Chepeau, two of the founders who have been continued their involvement while attending university in France, released the sixth major version in 2016. Ever since, the two developers have helped it grow quickly across the world. Both Boursier and Chepeau will now join Malwarebytes in engineering and research roles.
