how to keep the iDoctor away

DetectX console log
DetectX has been updated today to v2.37, and amongst other changes now detects and removes iDoctor.app. This piece of software appears to be another MacKeeper clone, with both sharing a common interface, code and file structures.

In the screenshot above, you can see DetectX doing its work – note the parallel file detections as DetectX hunts down both MacKeeper and iDoctor.

Below is a sidebar shot of MacKeeper on the left and iDoctor on the right. Underneath that are shots showing how the two interfaces are almost direct mirrors of each other. It’s hard to believe these are not both being built from the same base code, and we strongly suspect that the developers of iDoctor are very likely the same developers of MacKeeper, or at least real close friends!
