This week, a United States District Court judge ruled in Malwarebytes’ favor, dismissing a lawsuit brought against us by Enigma Software Group USA LLC (“Enigma”). Essentially, they sued us because we classified two of their software programs as Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs).

Zango v Kaspersky was a very powerful win for antimalware in the United States. Surprised Enigma wasn't aware / didn't think it applied / ???

synonym see MYSTERY"
