Antispyware Soft - This trojan has it's own website.

by seekercnet / May 7, 2010 1:52 AM PDT

I just got finished successfully removing the Antispyware Soft malware from my computer - It really screwed things up for a while. The strange thing is I just discovered the website where this program can be purchased. I looked at the site a with no problem. (Click on link at your own risk.) Can anyone tell me what's going on with this?

Message was edited by: admin to remove link to software title that can be harmful to others.

When I visited that site, (The Forum Admin edited out the link to stop others from clicking it), my browser warning add-on prevented me from going further with a clear warning about the site.

I use Firefox as my browser, and the add-on is WOT, (Web of Trust). This is what WOT says about that web site;
http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/antispyware-system.com

The WOT add-on is available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, and not only does it help with visiting rogue sites, but also in searches like Google, Yahoo, etc, search, it will indicate which links are safe, and which are suspect. It has saved my skin a few times.

You may want to try it out.

I've read Antispyware Soft can bypass many anit virus programs, as it seems to have done with mine. I'll check out that WOT add-on. Thanks a lot!

Not at all. All that s in https does is encrypting the communication between you and that site, so that no eavesdroppers can see the contents of what you exchange. Quite useful when entering the password for your electronic banking, but that's all. It has NOTHING to do with checking the contents of the site.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
