Hello all, you may address me as ET1. I am a GNU/Linux user, but am very annoyed with Web sites that try to install spyware on my computer, even though the code will no execute on my machine. These sites need to be shut down, but I do not know where or who to report the URL to. Therefore, I will post URLs here to sites that try to spoof people into downloading their crapware and perhaps someone on here knows where to report these URLs.

Regards,

ET1.

Also, just so everyone is clear, any site that is posted by me will be posted in the following format, so people cannot just click and go. This forum is for helping people with PC problems, right? Can we make a thread of sites to avoid?

Sites could be posted as:

subdomain [dot] subdomain [dot] domain

Without the protocol prefix. What better way to help than to create a boycott list? An ounce of prevention is worth four weeks of pulling your hair out trying to fix a machine with spyware embedded so deep that you might be better off to burn the hard drive and get a new one.

I have been in the virus and spyware removal game for some time, and do this type of work from time to time in my local community. I try to educate most of my customers on safe networking practices. If this is not the forum to post such information, please let me know where I can report sites to for further investigation, and maybe we can get these punks shut down, one at a time. The Internet wasn't built overnight, and these creeps need to know that the people intend to stop them.

Regards,

ET1
