    Rogue or not ?

    Seriously, what's the point of ANOTHER AV ?

    The WHOIS info suggests some kind of anonymity service.

    Yeah, what's clamAV about ? I know it's open source.
    According to what I've read, the detection rate is not exactly high. :doubt:
    So, why use it ? I know I could do research, but I'm too lazy.

    There is always room for a new AV that is better than its competitors, at a reasonable price. Whether Graugon meets these criteria -- who bloody knows, wot?

    Catchy name (Graugon), though. ;)

    I don't see anything wrong with that.

    When PrevX came, people said the exact same thing: "What's the point of another anti-malware?"

    Now look at PrevX; their one of the top names in the AM software business.

    The people who want to remove the virus using it have to register first... :thumbd:

    Does it accept fake data ?
    Giving personal information for an AV that is unknown, new, perhaps rogue, perhaps ineffective is probably not a good idea.

    Its not rogue av, but some comment say they have to pay some money (register) to clean the virus. There is also a "buy full version" at softpedia download page.
