Today Malwarebytes announced the hiring of Filipos Mouliatis, otherwise known as thisisu, and the acquisition of his tool Junkware Removal Tool. JRT is a tool that is designed to remove adware and other potentially unwanted programs from a Windows compuer. This tool is a very popular download at BleepingComputer.com with over 4 million downloads since Filipos began developing it. It will be exciting to see how JRT partnered with Malwarebytes will go even further to protect Windows users from adware and other unwanted programs.

Filipos has been always been an active and integral helper at BleepingComputer.com and we are glad to see his hard work pay off. As JRT continues to be developed with the support of Malwarebytes behind it, we know that there are only good things to come. Congratulations on your success!

Filipos, congrats on your merger with Malwarebytes! If I could ask, I would ask: Will you be adding a "pick the items to remove" move in your JRT soon? MBAM has that option, so that we can uncheck what we know is not malware.

I like this tool as a command line scanner gui. Now MBAM is probably going to plaster smiley faces everywhere.

Grinler, the first link doesn't return anything on Malwarebytes website. Here's the right link:
