Anti-Malware Toolkit Awards!

Recommended Posts

Most of those awards doesn't really mean anything.

Pretty much anything you upload to such download sites gives you an award.

The purpose is for the developer to go around posting and advertising those awards in order for the site to get more visitors.

At least the 100% Clean Award means something. :)

I believe that it is given to every single file that is uploaded and then accepted to be hosted.

Not much of an award imho.

Also, I am not sure they can be sure its 100% clean, so I don't think they should go around saying that.

Here you can read about the software award scam;

Actually, Softpedia revoked CCleaner's award when they started with the toolbar. After the Slim version became available they got it back.
