Avoid SpywareInfo.com: it is pushing rogue programs

Compilation of posts/warnings made by Name Game on DSLReports.com and several posts on SpywareInfoForum.info

GoDaddy just auctioned off Mike Healan’s original SpywareInfo.com, and what happened to it is what we feared would when we saw how high the price was getting. It appears that site is pushing rogue programs and is intended to make some quick money for the same people that Mike fought for many years… It is selling several rogue programs, including at least one that is considered to be an active infection… I strongly recommend that everyone avoid it unless your PC if quite well armored and I particularly recommend that no one buy anything through it.

Remember, Mike Healan’s spywareinfo is at http://www.spywareinfoforum.info. Change your bookmarks and shortcuts. And it will be helpful if you will post about the new address at sites you’re a member of.
