But one would think that if Matousec is a scam then surely all the recognised and respectable vendors participating in their testing (Eset,etc.) would not participate and expose it for what it is.
they don't ask to participate, Matousec just test then publish; this is why good softs got bad results, if you observe carefully , all the Low ranked vendors do not have HIPS or BB. Then it is to the vendor to decide to pay or not.
i love conspiracies ^^
you have to know that in marketing , "better have a bad score than be absent"; because many visitors will think , "this vendor is so bad that he don't want be tested".
