    It appears they require you to register to the uNet network first (I don't know what for).

    I'm confused. There is an ad (?) in german that reads: :D
    ...which redirects to the german Computerguard website. Any connection between them? Explanations welcomed o_O

    Not really, at least you can't download GSA Security from Computerguard.de.
    However, first the original GSA Security site disappeared and shortly afterwards the site came up again with this very strange text and the link to computerguard.de.
    But I talked with the forum owner and he has no clue what's going on and why they link to his forums.
    Maybe some sort of hijacking or joke, who knows.

    Cheers

    That's the most hilarious thing I've heard today :D. Computerguard should be fixing this ASAP.

    Thanks for the clarification Subset :thumb:

    Why? They have no intention whatsoever to sell GSA Security for € 10,000. :D

    Cheers
