    Don't know if this has been posted anywhere here yet, but here's the link to the educational video made by Harvard-student Benjamin Edelman to make people more aware of the dangers of spyware.

    Seems very interesting. Nice video. :cool:
    This video seems to describe a recent exploit in Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser.
    The video also shows a pornography website which seems to be owned by Coolwebsearch.
    You get to see how the spyware hijack the browser and open popups. The spyware also installs lots of its crap on the computer.
