As mentioned in another thread, I seem to have some malware on my computer.
What’s interesting about this stuff is that although it was all loaded onto my computer without my permission, the companies that make it seem to be legitimate firms, or at least some of them are. SurfSideKick, a real nasty one, is a company that actually advertises their junk, for instance. And most such companies do business with other legitimate businesses.
Given how much this stuff is hated by all Internet users with morals and ethics, why are these businesses not under virtually non-stop attack? Why do I not hear about them being picketed or protested against, or subject to withering denial-of-service attacks by hordes of furious geeks?
Not that I am advocating such things, but I do find it curious that so much effort is dedicated to coming up with software solutions to their attacks, but I never hear about anyone going after the manufacturers of what are, let’s face it, viruses.
