We will review the comments on pissedconsumer. Obviously these can be quite subjective but our goal is to determine if there is a pattern of concern which we will act on.

We have also submitted our software to bleepingcomputer for their technical review so it is not treated as malware.

Thanks once again for your comments.

Greetings Scott,

I was unable to determine the source of the software you sell. Are you a U.S. distributor for a white label product developed in Germany? I'm curious to know about the development team.

Your company, product, and website seem very similar to CyberDefender.com which is promoted by Registry Cleaners Watch. Both organizations are suspected of distributing malware, phishing, and hacking schemes -- and they use fake (impostor) content writers to generate back links to their sites on numerous tech blogs. The former is currently filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

I just wanted to make sure you don't have anything to do with that company and aren't affiliated with them in any way.

Regards,
Greg

Greetings from Boston Greg,

Thanks for your comments. We are a Boston company with 20 employees and have developed our own software. We are not a distributor of any white label products but we do resell McAfee and Norton. Winferno was started in 2002 and we are privately-owned and profitable.

As far as fake content, we don't have and content writers posting to tech blogs and forums. We don't have any connection with the companies you mentioned. My background: I have worked for software companies such as Corel, Serif, and Jasc (Paint Shop Pro purchased by Corel in 2004).

Thanks for taking the time to make your comments on the forum.

Regards,

Scott Johnson
