Evilest Of Evil Spyware Winning The War Someone I know recently got hit with CoolWebSearch the evilest of the evil new spyware products out there that seems to have one purpose, and one purpose only: to destroy your computer. While it may drive some pay-per-click ad money, CWS is so bothersome, that it can't really be that useful in generating money. In trying to fight it, one of the most useful tools out there has been a product called CWShredder. However, CWS has gotten ever more advanced, and the creator of CWShredder has given up, saying it's simply too much work to compete against CWS: "I simply do not have the tools to remove the latest variants. They are too aggressive or too complicated to allow for automated removal." Certainly not a good sign. [via Techdirt]
