HijackThis now open source

HijackThis icon Trend Micro has published the source code of its free anti-malware tool, HijackThis (HJT), on Sourceforge under a GPLv2 licence. Trend Micro says it will be maintaining the original source code but also incorporating modifications from the community.

HijackThis creator, Merijn Bellekom, said that "this means that other people can build on a solid base to create or improve their own anti-malware tools". Bellekom's anti-spyware tool was acquired by Trend Micro in 2007 and is used by many anti-spyware communities.
