I never trusted that Bonzi Buttmunch monkey.... I KNEW IT!
All the time people let him in their computers he was sending info to the Russians!
*sound of sirens, dr. Steve Stevens telling the orderly to get the tranq darts...*
But seriously, yeah, there are loads of spyware out there.
And like the title says, don't trust anything without checking it out.
I remember getting a program that was supposed to battle spyware on a friend's computer (because ad-aware wouldn't run on his piece-of-sh*t system), it simply deleted spyware to replace it with it's own preferred garbage.
When I found out, I went back to that website to complain about it, but somehow curiosity got the best of me so I whoissed the website... turned out it traced back to the same ip as another website known for it's spyware.
The moral of the story?
Never piss off dr. Steve Stevens LOL
