Stay away at all costs.
This program is a malware.
After i installed malwarebytes anti-malware on my pc,
mbam real time protection always blocked it form running.
Then yac runs again after mbam blocked it,and mbam blocked it again.
The "malware blocked" notification pops up a few times in a minute.
Also,malwarebytes says this software is stealing its database to use as YAC virus definitions.
The company Elex, had copied Malwarebytes's database and claimed it as their own. I wouldn't have a program that steals other companies' hard earned work. I don't recommend downloading this. #databasestealer

More than a month later, only 5 companies (including Malwarebytes) recognize this program as suspicious/malicious.
OPSWAT posted a blog post that describes their interest in investigating our claims of YAC stealing our definition database and have decided, after their own investigation, to pull their certification from YAC.
to discover that not only do they detect our fake malware but also use the same, unprofessional and misspelled detection name.
A t the beginning yac see,ed like it had taken over my machine. defo PUP. hOWEVER I DID A BIT (LOT) OF READING AND REALISED YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOURE DOING WITH IT. ALLOW IT TO RUN RAMPANT BLOCKING THINGS, QUARANTINING THINGS AND GENERALLY JUST BEING THE ACTUAL ADMIN INSTEAD OF YOU THEN I COULD UNDERSTAND THE NEGATIVITY HOWEVER, IF YOU (I KNOW, I KNOW) TAKE 5 0R 10 MINS TO READ THE HELP FILES THAT ARE INSTALLED YOU'LL SOON FIND OUT HOW TO GET IT DOING EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT IT TO AND NOT A BIT MORE. cOUPLE OF MINOR QUIBBLES - EVEN IF YOU DO EXIT A COUPLE OF ISAFE,EXE PROCESSES LINGER AND I'M ALMOST SURE I READ THIS WAS TOTALLY FREE FOREVER. OR MAYBE THAT WAS BAIBU. ANYWAY MY TRIAL IS ENDING SOON AND THEY'VE GIVEN ,ME A PRETTY SIMPLE TASK TO XTEND IT FOR A FEW WEEKS. BASICALLY, NO SUBSTANTIAL COMPLAINTS HERE. WEB BROWSERS (ALL OF THEM DON'T LIKE YAC THO_ IF THAT MATTERS TO YOU - JUSTINIUS23
This site is the official site of YAC, which is a rogue piece of software that stole malwarebytes database. They are pretty much mocked by real security companies.

this site appears to warn against using cameyo.com sandboxing software. WOT warns against this site, and I have previously trusted cameyo - so I'm inclined to agree, that this site is not to be trusted.
It is a good and useful software, I meet some virus issue when I traveled abroad.I turned to the user support for help and they helped me remove all the malicous in a short time.I will keep being a fan of this product.Thank you!
