(Please note that references to the original developers, Zeobit, also now refer to Kromtech Alliance Corp, who acquired MacKeeper and PCKeeper from ZeoBit LLC in early 2013.) And in that context the foregoing also applies to their latest offerings,Advnced MacKeeper, AdwareBuster and AdvancedMacCleaner ,which were quickly found to not identify much of the adware around.
