There really isn't much to review for this app. There is no way it could have scanned and 200+Gb drive in less than 1 second. And yes, I timed it.

Get something real in place of this. Get something that doesn't have to keep phoning home multiple times before, during, after its executed process.

For my money (which is no money, free), get Sophos instead. Though I wasn't ever infected by flashback, I did go after a copy of it to "sandbox", and Sophos found and killed it.

Well, it could be that the items it checks for are installed in known locations, which is certainly true of the Flashback item.

Correct. It only scans for the known trojans that can hurt the mac. It does not scan for viruses that wont hurt the mac but may hurt a PC if "passed on". One example would be Word Macro Viruses. They have unique signatures and are found in the same places on every computer. The program is updated as new trojans come out with their signatures. Sophos is a different type of program. It is a virus scanner. It scans every file and monitors new files. I agree its a good program but it does search for a lot of things that dont really matter to the average mac user.

So with that said, I guarantee if you had one of the 4 trojans we currently check for it would have let you know. Based on this explanation, if you can improve your review that would be nice since I think it was a misunderstanding.

Thanks Deemery for your your comment. You are correct about how it works. I am not going to make this do what Sophos does but we are open to suggestions. We put it out as a way to calm down the mass media scare about the recent trojans. Our phones were ringing off the hook from home clients, to businesses, and even the FBI. We put out this software so people could quickly check if they have any Trojans and repair them. All the repairs can also be done in the terminal but not every user knows how to do that. Our program cleans using the SUDO command so it can clean the entire computer. That is why it needs Admin rights.

I think you might be misunderstanding. The program itself does check for updated definitions and program updates but it does not phone home. In my comment when I said phones ringing, I mean people physically calling our support lines.

This fires on all cylinders. It just works. It does what it needs to do...100%. It is "Mom" proof (I hope she isn't reading this...LOL). It doesn't crash.... AND in terms of value, you can't beat free...

I extend gratitude and blessings to the developers for this charitable work against internet evil. Grace be with you.

I extend to them, the traditional US Navy WELL DONE!

I don't understand the motivation behind a few of you positing here, ((What is this the Salem witch trials?)) This is a FREE preventive maintenance App. or are you simply closet spelling and diction Nazi's, with No Life, that has nothing better to do than cruise the New software reviews, and Whiz on them. if you don't like it something, simply don't buy it, watch it, listen to it, and Move on to something you do like or can use.

So, you needed to post a second 5-star review just to call people Nazis and compare this to the Salem witch trials? Hmm, I have to wonder about your motivation on that one.

*My* only motivation is to point out the unethical behavior of the developer to other users. Why does it matter if the software is free or not? Developers should not be reviewing their own software. This type of behavior is especially concerning when it's security-related software...

>I don't understand the motivation behind a few of you positing here
I assume you mean "posting" (not "positing", which is a word). At any rate, I will explain the motivation behind our comments. We are unhappy with the fact that several five-star reviews have been posted by people who are likely, or appear to be, connected to the development of this program in some way. Posting those kinds of reviews is unethical, and is unfair to users who want to download software that has good ratings. When the developer(s) skew the ratings by posting positive reviews on their own software, users see what the developer wants them to see, not what impartial users actually think of the software.

I just got an email from this user who is an ER DOCTOR I think in Egypt. Question was can I explain what it means in English when someone calls them a sock puppet.

I forwarded it to macupdate as insulting and abusing users is not constructive criticism and is against their policies.

Please don't insult reviewers. There is nothing wrong with someone who signs up for macupdate to download something and is nice enough to write a review or in this case 4 or 5 reviews.

Review scams are not good. But unless there are a hundred reviews all at the same time you can't be sure it's not a real review.

And macupdate tells developers to encourage their customers to write reviews. Since macupdate requires registration they have to sign up. Then they wrote a review. There is nothing wrong with them giving it a good rating and if they use the product and like it, then it's valid.

So please think before you attack an innocent reviewer. You were a new member once too.

I am sure that i am allowed to review or rate any app here whether i downloaded it from here or not, and sure too that i am not going to download or post any thing in this forum anymore, there are many other forums where new members are welcomed.

macjeffa: just to make things clear saying someone is a sock puppet is not an insult and is not abusive either. In this instance it usually means the poster is suspected of being affiliated with the dev team in some manner.

macjeffva replied on 12 May 2012
Understand what sock puppet means in this case but not everyone would. You have to understand that mac users are of all types. The advanced types that are basic users. Some older people did not grow up in the computer generation and the ones like the review that was removed that was posted by someone over 70 for different product under our product. These people do not know better.

So my point is dont attack someone unless you are 100% sure they are what you say. As I said before we have had positive and negative comments and I have told people to write reviews when they email me. And we have thousands of clients that are using our product but may never have heard of macupdate. So if we send them there to do a review, it is an honest review from someone who has used the product, but they may not have ever written a review or even used macupdate before.

So please lets all be nice!!! Thanks for your comments.

@John2011,

I'm replying to your post on this sub-thread.

FTR, a sockpuppet is a term for an online identity meant as a deception (I state this because evidently some people don't know what it means). I used the term with you because you and several other new MU members became members the day this product showed up on MU, and this was the first product said new reviewers reviewed and they gave glowing 5-star reviews, which is also weird for a product that just came out the same day. This is suspicious behavior, particularly for new security software. One of the pro-MMR reviewers actually posted 4 reviews on in this first day, which is also suspicious in and of itself. Because of this suspicious behavior and the fact that this concerns security software -- and a history of similar behavior for definite hinky security ware in the past here at MU -- I and others have been vocal in pointing out these reviews (the hinkiness of the product description didn't help any either) to give a heads-up to less discerning visitors viewing these glowing reviews.

If you are a legitimate user of MMR and joined MU because you wanted to give a shout out for this software that you used apparently all of a portion of a day, then my sincere apologies. But I hope you understand why yours and similar reviews from spanking-new MU members raised suspicions.

I am all for new members to any and all on-line blogs and such. Which is part of the reason I am telling people to beware of this new security software with the apparently glowing reviews by newly minted reviewers.

I'd like to add that although some of these pro-MMR commenters have now given at least two 5-star reviews for this product, I and the others preaching caution regarding it have yet to give it a rating. This is because we want to maintain the legitimacy of MU review ratings and are leary to try this product out because of the tell-tale warning signs regarding it. We're not being vindictive to this product, only raising reasonable warnings based on the M.O. of past hinky security software and glowing reviews of dubious provenance.

How do you check if your Mac is infected by Trojans? You will find that MMR is very easy to use. All you have to do is click "Start scan" and "Clean" (if needed), and then the whole process will be finished in seconds.

If you feel that your Mac is infected by something, then you can choose MMR to check whether your Mac is infected by Trojans. This free anti-malware app will keep updating to protect the security of your Mac. (Requires 64 Bit Intel Processor)
