The monthly release will include generic removal mechanisms for the most prevalent hundred pieces of malware globally. Powered by the BitDefender technology that helped to achieve the only maximum protection score in Q1 2011 testing by leading security testing organization AV-Test, they can eliminate a wide assortment of infections, ranging from Trojans and worms to rootkit-based malware. Also featured is an overhauled interface that offers improved usability and aesthetics.
Viorel Canja, Head of BitDefender Antimalware Labs, said:
“Users not running an anti-malware solution take a greater risk of getting infected. Furthermore, if they have already become victims, they might infect friends or unwillingly affect other computers connected to the Internet. The recent publicity about TDL4 highlights the need to ensure you are protected, and these removal tools will go a long way to helping people do just that.”
The removal tool download page is located at Malware City for both the 64-bit version and the 32-bit version.
