Grisoft acquires XPL

Hi folks,

Sorry for not writing something sooner... it's been a busy few days. We're pleased to announce that we've been acquired by Grisoft, the developer of AVG. Nearly all the tech and marketing folk, including me and the other researchers from XPL are joining Grisoft, and we're all very excited about it.

AVG is a great little anti virus program, with a huge number of users, and we're looking forward to adding our software to their product. I expect that standalone LinkScanner will continue to exist as long as there are users for it.

The web continues to be the primary attack vector for those who would build their botnets and pwn other people's computers, and real time evaluation of incoming web-pages continues to be the best way to prevent the attacks.
