Microsoft acquires RAV Antivirus
jlguallar writes "Microsoft acquires the Romanian company GeCad. GeCAD is the company behind RAV antivirus, a cross-platform antivirus scanner for your mail server. With this purchase, Microsoft is adquiring the engineers and the intellectual propierty. Effectively, this means that there will be no more RAV for Linux: "Microsoft said that, although it was planning to acquire GeCad's intellectual property, it would not continue developing the company's products". Now, this is sad."
