    They have a good tech support forum on that website. That was where I found the information concerning the Java exploit by a trojan that I got on one of my PCs.

    Well, I would like to commend CastleCops for their generosity in this contest. And a big congratulations to CastleCops team! :)

    Even though I won't be able to participate (I'm not 18 years old), it is a really nice gesture that will benefit a lot of people. :)
