    This company have put out some new Iraqi Most Wanted "Deck of Cards" Solitaire game and curiousity got the better of me, so I went to check it out. When I got there to download I was presented with a Silver Creek "downloader".

    I don't know if it's spyware or not, I couldn't find a privacy policy on their site so I didn't let it install. When you download it manually it's 4.28MB as well, 4.28MB seems a bit large for a solitaire game (to me anyways).

    Well that is very interesting.

    Just from a general look I can mention something:

    The ActiveX installer seems to send data to a log file on the server. The following was found in the file: "h**p://www.silvercrk.com/dan_test/dl.cgi?Cmd=LogStats&File=%s&UserID=%s&SessionID=%i&AutoDL=1&Completed=1&FileSize=%i&KBps=%i&Attempts=%i"

    Best regards,
