Recently, we discovered that a relatively popular “anti-malware” product known as “Yet Another Cleaner” or YAC for short, has been claiming to be an affiliate of Malwarebytes in addition to using a lot of our detection names as their own. We looked deeper into their operation and found some pretty amazing and ugly things.

Thanks for posting this. I can't believe it. Just wondering, Can OPSWAT do anything in terms of forcing YAC to dismantle or at least play fair?
