Browser Toolbars
« on: 25. February 2012., 00:03:38 »
For many years now, I've been pushing the pri-sec community to collectively target the spyware known as bundled toolbars. I think many anti-spyware devs are AFRAID to target them even tho they know that the behavior of these nasties exceeds their published criteria for targeting.

I found this page encouraging; http://www.emsisoft.com/en/kb/articles/tec120110/

 ??? ???

I've always been really careful all kind of the toolbars  :thumbsdown: because they will appear from nowhere if you're not very careful when you install something new, and especially freeware programs!  >:(
