I tried to revive the old thread about this but the forum said it was "too old to reply to" so I am starting a new one... Topic says it all. I have a few clients who refuse to Uninstall Plaxo even after I warned them of the possible security risk and potential for abuse. I am looking for some hard evidence that Plaxo data is abused and results in an increase in UCE/UBE/SPAM/etc. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I will admit products like Plaxo are very tempting, they have a nice slick website and the product is polished and integrates nicely with Outlook. But I am quite suspicious of any company willing to give something like this away for FREE. What are they getting out of it? Surely it must be more than just that "warm fuzzy feeling".
