Emsisoft is still great, just not using it at the moment. Catch me at this time next year and we shall see.

Since when did Umbra go back to using AVs. I thought Anti Exe was his big thing. I am curious why you went to Emisoft.

Heard of them but never used them since my computer would flip out. Also poor :p

Christian Mairoll, Emsisoft’s founder and visionary.
His initials were the inspiration for the brand’s name. That’s “Emsi”: “MC”, hence “Emsi”.
source : Emsisoft | Who is Emsisoft?

that is so dumb. they could not find a better name for their company than this ridiculous BS they proudly state on their website. tsk tsk.

by the way, i voted no.

You mean , a link so you can download PoCs or malware for testing?

Anti-exe are still my thing, using EAM doesn't forbid me to use anti-exe/SRP :)
I work for Emsisoft now, so obviously i have to use the product we offer so i can explain it to users, and i mentioned many times here before, if i have to use one AV, it would be Emsisoft AM.

@ispx you comment toward me is displaced, so in your opinion, i should not look and apply for a job offer when i need one?

a job eventually boils down to money right & i posted a picture of money in reply to @DJ Panda's query about your emsisoft connection.

if you are working for them you are obviously getting paid for it, unless you are doing some charitable work for / with emsisoft.

emsisoft is in new zealand so i posted a picture of new zealand dollars, definitely not misplaced & there is no comment just an image.

how does my post imply that you should not " look & apply for a job " is beyond me. what you do in your life is none of my business.

How does Emsisoft's company name story differs from Kaspersky CEO Eugene Kaspersky? I see nothing wrong with that, in fact, I think Emsisoft is pretty cool name :p
christian mairoll is the ceo, initials CM / MC. EM SI was derived from MC. a pathetic lack of creativity if you ask me but pretty cool for you (y)

CMsoft would have been a more "serious" name for a security company? Who are we to judge? :rolleyes: Personally, I wouldn't have thought about how the company name was chosen if that story weren't written by Christian Mairoll. I look at the story more as a joke, not as a creativity lack. I think every company has rights to call them whatever they wanted to be. :)
