http://scanner.shredderscan.com/1/?advid=3980

The above link looks rather flaky. Not sure if it's already known (I didn't see SpyShredder listed on the rouge list), but it looks like it tries to do an ActiveX driveby install. Yay, the internet needs more of those Rolling Eyes !

Yes, or use hxxp instead of http. Or just leave off the http:// and www completely. Thanks.

Just a question... Why hasn't SpyShredder ever been listed as rouge? Perhaps because it has not been tested. Just thought I'd ask.
