    Has anyone used this software? There does not appear to be any privacy policies nor licensing Agreement available. The company provides a legal statement but nothing else. What say you allo_O?

    That scanner has been mentioned a couple times here. See this thread which has a link to another with more information:

    I believe the overall opinion was that it was the only free online scanner specific for Trojan detection, but that it was merely good, not great.

    Well, you can trust this company, but you can't trust the scan.
    Last trojan database update 20-8-03
    Ran a check on my collection and it detected only 1 out of 20.

    Looks like it's abilities are dropping like a rock then. Paul at least got 35 out of 80, but granted that was a few months back now. It's really too bad they aren't maintaining it. :doubt:
