    That just scary. I run spybot that for sure. But other wise I have no idea what you could do. Shouldn't your firewall be able to protect you from something like that?

    I've heard of evidence eliminator. Basically if you are doing stuff on your computer that you don't want your boss or the missus finding out about, they are there to "help".

    for those of you that couldnt spot of for a hoax/advert straight away pay attention to the HTTP 911 error code
    there is no HTTP 9xx errors :)
    infact theres none over 5xx :)

    nice advert, if not a bit worrying to the casual user
    nothing to fear here folks, the information it throws back at you is simple to gain from the http headers your exchanging with the webserver

    LOL@ryan. Your comments remind me of any number of scenes in old movies where there has been some sort of public commotion. The beat cop comes along to break up the crowd saying something like: "Move along now. Show's over. Nothing more to see".

    I was envisioning you as the cyber-equivalent of that beat cop. :wink:

    Well it definatly IS some dodgy marketing for the likes of normal users, this would scare the crap out of most of them

    however most of the certforums userbase are technical adept, so you served only to embaress yourself ;)
    j/k
    niceley brought to the attention of all, any company using these kind of marketing tactics is probably snake oil, be warned

    When I click on the link, I get a warning that I am under investigation, and the the police have put "black boxes" in at my ISP to record my surfing habbit and downloads, and that I might be in serious trouble.

    Whilst they could track my habbits through my ISP, I'm not really worried as I've done nothing "wrong", and i don't think it's a great possibilty either. LOL

    This company is just trying to scare people into buying their product, and I think fear as a marketing tool is terrible. Unfourtunatly, it seem's to be used more and more now, because these companies realise that your average joe doesn't have a clue what is goin on. If they can panick them, they'll buy.

    Here a some choice quotes




    Whilst some of this may be true, it seems unlikely lol.

    and now for my personal favorite

    these methods would be illegal here in the UK, not quite sure what standards the good ole land of the free adheres to these days, but it seems corporates run the show over there, so it wouldnt suprise me if they get away with spreading this FUD to the average joe

    the plus side is this is a UK company, so there may be something that can be done about it
    the bad side is its hosted on a .com domain, and possibly a US based server, meaning nothing may be able to be done about it
    ill do some more research

    This is true. I don't want to go too off topic, but one think i have noticed about North America, is allot of advertising is based on fear. Fear of disease, fear of being fat, fear of this, fear of that. I can't believe people actually fall for this stuff.

    seems the IP is owned and registered in the UK too, we may well be able to set the OFT onto this one
