Malware: 180solutions sponsors class of second graders in Ohio


.......Yes, in fact, there are several problems with this scenario, not the least of which is the misleading text in the security warning (ActiveX) box. It says “Website Access By Zango Search Tools”. There’s an implied meaning that in order to view the website, one needs to download the “Website Access”, whatever that is. Not true!!

What kind of page is that and who is going to be viewing it? It says “Come on in to Mrs. Hall’s second grade class [...]”. It looks to me like a page Mrs. Hall made for her second grade students and their parents. Nice. I’m sure Mrs. Hall meant well. How old are second graders? Six or seven, depending on when their birthday is. Can 6 or 7 year olds enter into contractual agreements? No. Will 6 or 7 year olds know what that warning means? No. Will they click yes because they want to see what’s on the page? Most likely. Spyware Warrior » 180solutions sponsors class of second graders in Ohio
