An anti-spyware company was recently spanked for misleading (i.e., scaring and bullshitting) people into buying their product. They resorted to one of the oldest trick in the internet book: pop-up windows (disguised as system errors) which scream “YOU’VE GOT SPYWARE ON YOUR SYSTEM! BUY OUR PRODUCT NOW BEFORE YOUR PC EXPLODES!” or something to that effect. We’ve all seen crap like this and it’s laughably stupid, but it’s easy for the more gullible folks out there to fall for it. The fact that their software doesn’t even work properly is what makes this particular case so sleazy!
