SpywareInfo (SWI) down

by Marianna Schmudlach / June 12, 2005 12:36 AM PDT

The server hosting SpywareInfo's message board has had a psychotic episode. A crack team of cyberpsychoanalysts is trying to convince it to come off the ledge and back in through the window at this moment.

In the meantime, choose another ASAP message board if you are here looking for help removing spyware or a browser hijacker. Go here, scroll down to "Recommended Sites" and choose a message board from the list. Don't all of you just click the first link in the list or you'll swamp that site's staff. If you don't recognize any of the other names on the list, please choose one at random. They all know how to remove spyware safely or they wouldn't be in the list.

is also down, or at least it was earlier, haven't checked lately. One of our members mentioned in in another thread this morning and this one here is from the Spybot Forum at Net-Integration. I wonder if they have the same team of cyberpsychoanalysts.
