Rogue software floods anti spyware market


Malware writers are flooding the market with rogue anti spyware applications in an attempt to steer consumers away from genuine security software and make money from selling bogus applications.

Download service Snapfiles told vnunet.com that the rogue applications outnumber genuine software by a factor of four to one.

Snapfiles hosts free and trial applications for consumers to download, and claims to reject any software that fails to deliver the promised functionality or causes harm to a system. Rogue software floods anti-spyware market - vnunet.com
