Rogue AVG AV on the Web...
January 31, 2011 - "... A rogue* was recently discovered to be using AVG's logo and reputable name, hoping to mislead and trick people into purchasing the fake AV... Aside from AVG's logo, the rogue's interface bears no resemblance to that of the legit AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011... However, users who aren't familiar with the product might not notice this difference and think that they are getting the real thing. One bit of advice — watch out for the source. Most antivirus companies provide free/trial versions of their products directly on their websites... skip the untrustworthy channel and get it directly from the AV vendors." **
