    only AhnLab and WhiteArmour's AV programs stopped AVPass in its tracks most of the time, the researchers say

    Interesting.Never heard of whitearmour before. Does it also bypass google's bouncer or whatever it is called now ?

    WhiteArmour is apparently not available in the U.S. yet.

    Yes, but you don't have to use it. After running a scan, there is a Boost Now option, but there's no cleaner or task killer that runs in the backgronud.
