    This is a most difficult area; many of these applications don't contain malicious code, which is why they're not flagged by AVs in general. Some AVs are adding rogues to their databases, but it takes up more of their time to analyse the "intent" of a program that does nothing other than report erroneous scans and requests you to pay to fix those so-called errors. Yes, some AVs/AMs are adding them, but not at the same speed they add detection for "real" malware.

    As this Rogue Software Test and MRG are being discussed extensively with Prevx mentioned, no need to have two overlapping discussions. That being said, We'll bring this thread to a close and continue there.
