Innovagest2000.com = malware

Post by Seattle John » Mon Apr 21, 2008 10:23 am

The above mentioned website has been distributing a rogue anti-malware program called XP AntiVirus2008. The program repeatedly encourages you to upgrade from the free version after reporting bogus security threats. The program is difficult to uninstall. Firefox 3.0 will not even allow you to access the site (it is in Google's malware list).

RealPlayer versions 10.5 and 11

These programs have earned the 'Badware' title. It seems that v. 10.5 will pop up ads from the system tray UNLESS you register the program. In v. 11, it will also install Rhapsody Player Engine without telling you. If you uninstall RealPlayer, the Rhapsody Player Engine will remain, and must be uninstalled separately. The company has promised to correct these problems in the next version
