‘Traditional’ is being redefined.Known by many names, Rogue Antispyware, Fake Antivirus, Malware, or Scareware… the defacto ‘traditional’ method is now the “drive-by while browsing”. I am fascinated by these. “They play on our fears!” Poisoning search results and legit sites, these things are everywhere. AND THEY WORK! $100’s of millions are being made by these pros.
Found a guy that really tracks this stuff. I don’t know anything about VIPRE he hawks, but a really complete list of Rogue Antispyware found here.
