Shady enough for me.Sniper Corporation is INDIA based company located in Pune, Maharashtra with a fairly young and dedicated team aiming at providing the finest technology available in the market.
That doesn't mean it's automatically clean/safe, it could just be unknown to AV vendors out there and be packed to avoid static detection methods.VT reports that the download link is clean. So at least it won't hurt you.
It probably has very basic AV capabilities and they probably just over-charge people for what it's really worth, or it's fake. Only testing/analysis can identify which category. I doubt it's a rogue though, they aren't as common these days as they used to be and if it was a rogue I think an AV vendor would know about it by now, they are quick to pick-up on these new threats.Considering a large number of fake tech-support scammers, Ransomware etc coming from that region, I would take their product with a pinch of salt. Or alot of salt.
I tested it very briefly some months ago. From memory it was a very basic antivirus and I was unimpressed with it. However, since it's been a while and I couldn't remember any specific details about it I just tried it again.
