    Very little, it appears. Supposedly developed here: http://briteccomputers.co.uk/. However, this person's web site in the U.K. has zip references to the product.

    Appears to have a lot of secrecy surrounding the product by design to keep info out of the bad guys hands. For example, no public documentation exists on the product.

    The tool is just like Combofix. A low level scriptable tool, not intended for everyday use. If you know what you are doing it is quite helpful though.

    Farbar is a malware fighter who helps people with malware removal on a variety of security forums. He has incorporated his own experience and other malware fighters into some useful tools to assist helpers in removing malware.

    The updates to the tools are regular.

    Sounds cool to me.
