Our story

From a one-page site to an industry leader

In 2011, Elijah Malyshev (M.Sc., current CEO of Virusdie, former CEO and co-founder of EETC JSC) and his Dustyscreen Research web development team were focused on just one web server's (and website's) security problems. At that time, many websites on different CMSs and separate hosts began to be infected every day. It was a global epidemic of website infections. Each day, the number of infected and compromised websites increased. The team set out to answer a basic question: “How can webmasters clean their websites quickly and accurately? How can they protect their websites easily?”

Then, the team developed and launched the Virusdie project in February 2012. It was a one-page web service that helped webmasters scan and clean up malware on their websites automatically. It was based on sync file technology, and it used a unique antimalware database and software that enabled it to detect and remove malware from website files highly accurately.
