Spyware? Who cares?

Dec 7, 2004

According to Wired a lot of people doesn't mind spyware as long as they can get their free crap and use it. The article focuses on Marketscore who provides a free email virus scan service in exchange for routing all of the websurfing people with infected computers do through their servers, sniffing everything, including encrypted connections to banks etc. People also doesn't mind Clarias gator, as long as they can use their “eWallet” they're happy.

My brain hurts.
