    I am afraid it may be discussed before as told by a friend of mine.

    There is a rebranded version of Malware defender from
    Code:
    www.360.cn
    Anyone heard about it?
    I have found a direct download link and it looks like a retailed version.
    Code:
    http://down.360safe.com/md_setup_en.exe
    I downloaded and installed it some times before. It looks identical with the original version from torchsoft. But uninstalled if it is fake. I scanned it in virustotal, hitman pro, prevx, nothing found.

    Check THIS Wilders thread & you will find lots of information about MD (Malware Defender).

    The links you show are "legitimate" by the way.

    Thank you. Is there any discussion about this? You said it is legitimate, so this rebranded version is free?

    Malware Defender (TorchSoft) was sold by the owner (Xiaolin) to 360safe www.360.cn and now works for them. The new version is free. I had been running version 2.7.1 beta and it was stable. I am waiting to hear if this is now the public release and if so what changes from the beta. It is legitimate.

    Thanks icr, saw it in another thread. If there is no change from the current beta (2.7.1) I probably don't need to download.

    I can also see there is no purchase option in torchsoft for malware defender.
    http://www.torchsoft.com/en/purchase.html
    So, version v2.6 is the stable version?
    Code:
    http://www.torchsoft.com/download/md_setup.exe

    No the new version is free. There is no further option to purchase 2.6. I am using 2.7.1 and it is stable.
