SUPERAntiSpyware bought by for 8.5 million

Recently acquired SUPERAntiSpyware for a healthy sum of $8.5 million. The deal is expected to finalize by the end of the year. SUPERAntiSpyware is a free tool that is extremely useful when cleaning up a system. It’s offered in both paid and free versions, but for most the free product delivers as promised.

What many people don’t know is that SUPERAntiSpyware, headquartered in Eugene, Oregon, is developed and maintained by a staff of ten. Those ten people, including founder Nick Skrepetos, will join full-time once the $8.5 million dollar deal is complete.

What changes will this mean for the SUPERAntiSpyware software? That much is unclear at this point in time. It’s rumored that the free version will remain as such, free for many to use. However, the pay version will be pushed heavily.
