Hi All,

Does anybody know of a company called 2Squared? Their "flagship" product is AntiSPYwareBOT, company website is:

http://www.2squared.com/index.php

I cannot find any contact address anywhere + seem to have a website for every product they have, like:

AntiSPYwareBOT - http://www.antispywarebot.com/index.php
ErrorSweeper - http://www.antispywarebot.com/index.php

As Spybot S&D detects AntiSPYwareBOT as malware (http://spywarewarrior.com/viewtopic.php?t=16259&highlight=antispywarebot) I am a bit dubious about it. Any ideas - any feedback appreciated.

Best regards,
Anthony Aykut | Frame4

It looks rogue-ish to me. No informtion about the company and domain registration info is private.

I would stick with the known, tried and true anti-spyware programs and avoid this one based on what I've seen so far.

Thanks for the feedback! Worst case (or, best case) scenario is to be safe than sorry I guess and not to trust an untrusted source.

Regards,
Anthony
