A Interview with 180Solutions CEO
As I wander the halls of the 180solutions mother ship in Bellevue, Wash., I notice that each of the company's departments is fitted with large, wall mounted plasma screen televisions that display graphs charting 180's daily and weekly sales and revenue numbers.
The display nearest the marketing department showed that 180 pulled in more than $1 million in the past week alone serving ads to people who have its adware installed on their computers. Today's estimated revenue is slightly more than $100,000; the graph showing how much the company has actually earned so far today reads $2,966, but then again it is just after 10 a.m. Security Fix - Brian Krebs on Computer and Internet Security - (washingtonpost.com)
