Spy Shield: Newest rogue anti spyware
It's rare that we find a rogue antispyware program that actually installs spyware/adware but yesterday I found this one on Google. Spy-Shield was being advertised with Google AdWords using "Spy Sweeper". Screenshot of the ad is below.
I clicked on the ad and was taken to the Spy-Shield website. Note the deceptive scan, shown on the web page, that appears to be finding spyware on your computer. The page says in faint text "sample scan". Screenshot below. Notice, too, below the "free download" button the small text in italics that says Spyware Warrior » Newest rogue anti-spyware installs adware from BestOffersNetwork
