New Company, Robot Genius, Hunts Down Malware

Found out about this company while doing some surfing. Here's a little info:

Who is Robot Genius?
Robot Genius develops market-leading, behavior-based technology that locates, identifies and protects against various forms of malware. Its industry-leading RGcrawler data list—created from the industry’s first automated malware web crawler, is the most comprehensive ‘blacklist’ of all exact URLs containing malware on the Internet. Combined with the company’s browser plug-in enhancement, RGguard and security client, Spyberus, Robot Genius provides the most complete prevention, detection, and remediation of malware to protect against all types of malicious threats.

How was Robot Genius started?
Robot Genius was founded in June, 2005 by James N. Hormuzdiar, PhD Yale and Stephen Hsu, PhD Berkeley (professor of theoretical physics at the University of Oregon).  James and Stephen also founded SafeWeb, Inc., an SSL VPN company acquired by Symantec in 2003.

What are the Robot Genius products?
Robot Genius creates behavior-based technology that locates, identifies and protects against various forms of malware.  Its products include RGcrawler data, the most comprehensive ‘blacklist’ of all exact URLs containing malware on the Internet; RGguard, a lightweight browser plug-in enhancement that works in tandem with the RGcrawler data; and Spyberus, a behavior-based anti-malware desktop security client.

How is Robot Genius different?
Current desktop security software applications attempt to protect PCs against malware by using the same methods as traditional antivirus software, protecting users only from discovered threats. They cannot detect malware, because it morphs too frequently. Robot Genius’ multi-point solution was designed and created from unique behavior-based anti-malware technology that looks for characteristics within executables that are specific to malware. In this way, it is much more accurate at determining if a software program is malware.

One question, how do I buy stock?
