Positive News in the War on Spyware

180Solutions Inc., one of the largest purveyors of ad-serving software (labeled by some as "spyware"), has terminated its business relationship with Integrated Search Technologies (IST), a company that makes the family of toolbars for Internet Explorer that hijack the user's browser and serve pornographic pop-up ads. 180Solutions said it would no longer allow IST or any other third-party "affiliate" to install software on its behalf.
