Court slams former spam king over spyware

A default judgment against Sanford "Spamford" Wallace and his company, SmartBOT.Net, orders them to give up $4,089,500 in ill gotten gains.

The order also bars them from downloading spyware onto consumers' computers; from downloading any software without consumers' consent; from redirecting consumers' computers to sites or servers other than those the consumers selected to visit; from changing any Web browser's default home page; and from modifying or replacing the search features or functions of any search engine.
