AVG antivirus pulled until investigation completed
Just a quick update to our story yesterday regarding the AVG antivirus app, which is claimed to be spyware by Justin Angel, Rafael Rivera and others. Evidently, the app has been pulled by Microsoft until further notice.
That doesn't mean they've necessarily found anything that violates the Marketplace, but they are erring on the side of caution. Brandon Watson gave an update via Twitter stating:
"AVG app pulled from marketplace. Doing some investigations, but want functionality certainty. Thanks for headsup."
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Needless to say, AVG has a pretty bad PR problem now to overcome.
