    A recent post by Page42 got my attention, but I didn't want to reply in that thread (not wanting to get off topic in that thread).

    First, thanks to Page42 for that post. I didn't know that SpyReveal was shutting down.

    hxxp://spyreveal.com/

    I had noticed that the last definitions I got for it, were from 01 Nov 2013; see screenshot.

    I don't know the reasons behind the shutting down, except the quoted message on the site.

    You're welcome, FanJ. I just stumbled upon the info today and posted what I'd found. :)
    Just like we didn't know the reasons behind the breakup of SpyCop and the formation of SpyReveal, right? ;)
    I will miss the fact that they hunted down commercial loggers. It was one heck of a niche market.
    But I won't miss their "shadiness". Sorry, but that's the best word I can think of to summarize my opinion of them.

    Increasingly that's what we are seeing, friend.
    Pages are turning faster and faster.
    What it was ain't what it is!
    You can quickly gauge the popularity of SpyReveal by the sheer number of members flocking to this thread to mourn its passing. ;)
    Merry Christmas!

    Why not send this info to a MBAM support person?

    Pardon, you "found" a key?
    With all due respect, unless I am misunderstanding things, that smells to something that is not tolerated here.

    I found the key somewhere in the net. When I want to test a program and there are no test licenses, trial keys - I go to "pirates" for "legal" keys. But I do not distribute any, only for my private non-commercial use:) I respect the law, to some extent:) Currently, I am not involved in reverse engineering or hacking. But greatly respect and appreciate work of hackers, reversers and such people as Snowden. It is tolerated "there" ;)

    StillAlive,
    This board was never set-up for pirated keys, neither for the defending of using them in any kind of way, etc. It has never been tolerated here, never!

    It is useless to discuss any possible FPs any further. The SpyReveal site clearly tells the shutting down. It's over and out.

    Hi Brummelchen,

    The date format (as shown in my screenshot) is mm-dd-yyyy.
    See for example this older screenshot:

    SpyReveal_2012_05_31_1.gif

    The latest defs I got were from 01 Nov 2013. I am an old user with a life-time subscription for SpyCop; that licence was carried over to SpyReveal in some way.

    ===

    Hi controler,

    (off topic)
    Kevin can be found here:
    http://www.knosproject.com/
    http://knosproject.proboards.com/index.cgi

    =====

    With all that being said, I don't see any point in letting this thread go on.
    I'll ask the mods to close this thread; they have the final word.
