Spyware from the trenches

I'm rather ignorant when it comes to spyware and adware, having never had one of them on my computer. But my attention was caught by the name in the Window's title bar: Zango.

Zango is the product of spyware/adware maker 180solutions. The company is desperately trying to rid itself from its spyware image. Last year the firm filed several lawsuits on its crusade, suing some affiliates who had illegally installed the software (the suit has since been dropped, fuelling speculation that it was merely a PR move) and Zone Labs, a maker of anti-spyware software (because the company calls Zango spyware).
