Lookoutsoft.net Stealth Installs SearchMiracle

Spyware buster Roger Karlsson emailed me an absolute treasure yesterday, a great video of something else — Enternetmedia’s SearchMiracle being installed with absolutely no notice and consent and not even an add/remove entry (you have to remove it through the toolbar itself or at Searchmiracle’s website). In his video, he downloads a game called Balloon Pop from Lookoutsoft.net and subsequently got a stealth-install of SearchMiracle.....So last night and today, I tested it and sure enough, Roger is right. This is nasty. Sunbelt BLOG: Seen in the wild: Lookoutsoft.net
