    I was wondering when CWS would get around to this.

    Yeah, and a lot of the other spyware is heading in the same direction. I hope the AS/AV companies are ready for this stuff. I wonder if Hijackthis will be able to find this garbage.

    I knew they were heading down that track, but hadn't heard before that article that CWS had added that functionality. CWS has for a while seemed to be the nastiest of the common spyware.
