Dell hit with $500m discrimination suit

Woman sues EA over 'secret' Spore DRM


@ Tony Paulazzo

I don't pirate games but I do believe that you can get some pretty nasty side effects (trojans etc) off game torrents. But that does not explain how terrorists get supported or funded by a 14yo getting a cracked game!

Anatomy of a malware scam


Double hit

I had a couple of hours free this morning so I decided to duplicate the excellent work by Mr Johansson. I got almost the same results on a perfectly clean XP install.

At the same time, on my main machine, I was looking for some information on a unrelated issue on Google Groups when I clicked on a link that took me to an almost identical site. It detected over 35 viruses and spyware and told me it could fix the issues no problem. This is despite the fact that I am running Linux :)

I have to say that both sites were very professional looking and I believe that a lot of people are going to be taken in by these scam artists, I wonder if the credit card companies could do anything about it?
