AVOID! CyberByte is a know plagiarist of other company's intellectual property as well as an abuser of open source software, charging for what is free intellectual property. As such, its surprising to me that this company in Romania is still in business. Also note the odd 5 star mystery review below from first-time reviewer gilmatospr22, who arrived here at MU only 12 days ago. If you'd like to know more about CyberByte's plagiarism and abuse of open source licensing, please read this article by Thomas Reed of Malwarebytes, whose code was stolen by CyberByte: CyberByte steals Malwarebytes’ intellectual property by Thomas Reed on March 21, 2018 https://securityboulevard.com/2018/03/cyberbyte-steals-malwarebytes-intellectual-property/ ..."One of these violations was that CyberByte acts as a wrapper for the open-source ClamAV engine (which doesn’t have comprehensive Mac signatures in its database), because asking for payment for a free antivirus engine is a potential red flag. However, it appeared likely that they were using another engine in addition to ClamAV. "After further examination, we noticed that there was something awfully familiar about CyberByte’s scans—specifically, the names of the threats it was looking for as part of its “quick scan.” "Among antivirus companies, names of various threats tend to vary, sometimes quite widely. For example, something we call Adware.Crossrider might be called Trojan.Crossrider, OSX/adAgent, or Other:Malware-gen by other antivirus programs. In the case of CyberByte, the names we saw scrolling by during a scan were our own Malwarebytes detection names...." NOTE: If you're going to respond to this review, be certain you have read the linked article above beforehand and know what's at stake regarding code plagiarism and license abuse.
