Lee Koo. About SpyHunter vs Bleepingcomputer.com site

by James Denison / December 12, 2016 5:35 PM PST

There's a "slap suit" brought by a malware group against bleepingcomputer you, CNET should be aware of. You might suggest CNET legal teams take a look at it since they might want to get involved, because at CNET forums warnings against this particular company and their SpyHunter software is also done. If Enigma gets away with this, or even worse wins, it will affect more than bleepingcomputer for tech help ability to warn people away from malware producers.

by "malware site" I mean their software alleges it identifies and removes spyware. Since I use Linux, I've not tried nor tested the software myself. I see both supporters and complainers on a google about the software.
