Hi Seth,
I don't know enough on that to feel comfortable giving you my personal opinion but I found an interesting link for you.
Another site sent 20 questions to Aluria and then posted their responses. A selection of the questions:

What are your thoughts on the Aluria and WhenU arrangement?

Will the software target the removal of competing anti-spyware/adware solutions?

How can Aluria be an objective security company when it is partnered with a known offender?

How do you feel about being delisted on security sites and therefore losing faith in the public eye?


I'm not through reading it yet, but they do seem to defend themselves well enough so far.
Also found this Slashdot post on the subject. It's worth a look.
Hope that helps!
