Aluria Announces First-of-Its-Kind Spyware Hotline
Aluria Software, developer of anti-spyware for consumers, ISPs, and enterprise customers, has introduced the Aluria Spyware Hotline that allows Internet users to contact spyware experts when they suspect their computers have been infected with potentially dangerous spyware programs.
Spyware creators are consistently developing new spyware programs that can often bombard victims with unwanted emails, slow down computer operation or
allow hackers to monitor web surfing after a computer user has downloaded the spyware program by simply surfing the internet or downloading "free" programs
from web sites.
All Web users can now contact Aluria's spyware experts by dialing (321) SPYWARE when they suspect they have downloaded a new form of spyware.
Aluria's Spyware Detection Teams will research and identify the threat. If they detect a new form of spyware, Aluria will add it as a new definition
within the Spyware Eliminator software and work to educate all Internet users of the new threat.
