AVG Integrating Anti-Virus Service Into P2P Company LimeWire

Posted Mar 11, 2010

P2P sharing network LimeWire has been notorious for serving viruses and Trojan horses within search results.  To alleviate this issue, LimeWire has signed a deal with AVG earlier this week to encourage people to sign up for a Pro account. Downloads made by LimeWire Pro users will be scanned by AVG going forward.  Currently LimeWire has about 50 million users worldwide. [CNET]
