    I have spoken with Webhelper and in an effort to post all info he has garnered on this group, and to keep everyone aware of their presence and their involvement in some of the nastiest prevalent infections on the net, I will update this thread as he updates his site, with his blessing.

    Our greatest tool against them is exposure.

    Is This Software On Your Hard Drive?

    How one of the Internet’s largest and most secretive adware companies really operates. With new regulations coming, will it really reform?

    Dec. 9 - In November 2000, yet another e-commerce start-up was grappling with its inevitable fate. Dash.com CEO Dan Kaufman called a meeting of most of the company’s employees in its New York City offices and stared down at the conference-room table as he delivered the bad news. “This is a day I hoped would never happen,” he said, according to an employee at the meeting. The board of directors had just agreed that the dot-com company’s prospects were dim. “Please gather your belongings and exit the building.”

    Dash’s business model was ahead of its time—a prototype of what adware companies are doing today. The business asked Web surfers to download a software toolbar that tracked their Internet shopping and offered related e-commerce discounts at the point of purchase. For example, if a user was prepared to buy a book at BarnesandNoble.com, the Dash toolbar could offer a coupon for the same book at Borders. In the midst of a profligate investment environment, Dash.com raised $50 million on this idea from venture capitalists such as AT&T Ventures and the JPMorgan Investment Corp. Now it was preparing to give any leftover cash back to investors and slink off into the dot-com void. “I guess we learned a lot of expensive lessons at Dash,” says Joshua Abram, a former vice president at the company.

    As of June 2001, Dash.com and its competitive-coupons idea was officially dead. Or was it?

    In this week’s edition of NEWSWEEK, we looked at the growing online presence of adware, software that sits on users’ hard drives and can slow down the desktop with resource-consuming pop-up ads. Adware companies like Claria, WhenU and 180solutions load their software onto hard drives by offering appealing free programs like games, updated weather reports and the like. The adware then serves pop-ups ads on the screen that are often related to the user’s Web activity.

    Next year, Congress is likely to pass new legislation regulating the industry. It will require that adware companies obtain explicit permission from users before their programs are populated onto hard drives and to put their name at the top of each pop-up, so users know who’s responsible for it. Most importantly, the new law will make sure consumers can easily delete unwanted adware.

    CPVMARKET.COM where they are using the affiliate interface from Mygeek.com from the AdsOn Network.

    They also now have a new IPinsight Sentry Stub called mlotus.exe which they have named after their site which does not have an active IP assigned yet called mlotus.com.

    They have also changed their Speer.dll from 2004 to a new one called speeryox.dl (More to come on this one)

    They are also using their Speer2.dll which creates their buddy.exe like the Speer and ceres variants. See Speer2.dll

    Looks like the Transponder Gang has finally went over to the dark side of in allowing CWS exploits to not only bundle new variant called kz515.dll BUT I have also found for the first time in 4 Hijackthis logs on the Internet that their offeroptimizer.com is using an IP address for their search.offeroptimizer.com which is to their searchrabbit.com site. Also, search results direct themselves to findwhat.com. Pure Pay-Per Click search.

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = hxxp://search.offeroptimizer.com/sidebar.htm
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = hxxp://search.offeroptimizer.com/sidebar.htm

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

    The CWS that shows hotoffers.info (See My write up on the dropper.exe)
    and is from the IP Block of Atrivo that is infested with CWS

    Looks like the KZ515.dll is being installed by a bundled install via a possible CWS exploit. If anyone who is hit by the kz515.dll and knows where it came from, please submit your link here: Submit Suspect Sites so that I can research it and we can see exactly why the Transponder gang has changed their methods by writing to the registry and changing users start pages.

    I was able to now find the kz515.dll and how it installs: Also. they list the website in the file properties as www .kz515.com of which I just checked and it is available.

    Full details on the New Transponder kz515.dll

    ========================================
    28 March 2005

    Today I installed the kz515.dll and went to Mypctuneup.com to remove it. There software removed the kz515.dll, however, the software left all registery entries intact. This to me as I see it by their EULA, along with the different files of theirs that contain XML code to search a users computer for any of their CLSID's, to me is nothing more than when I stated on 12/27/2004 they were acting like 5th columinsts and all they leave behind after an uninstall amounts to what I call adware sleeper agents.

    There is a lot of news about Direct-Revenue and its uninstaller processes of late. However, as I have in other writings of my testing of their variants and using their Mypctuneup.com to uninstall, there is still a lot of questions that need answered.

    I just came across a article I found in the Goolge.com Groups search about Direct-Revenue.com and their uninstaller. From the article I found one part of a quote by Daniel Doman, Direct Revenue's chief technology officer where states he "...said the company just wanted to make sure that consumers weren't deterred from uninstalling with MyPCTuneUp. He said that the program doesn't install any other software, but leaves behind a tag indicating that DirectRevenue was once on the computer. With that tag, users cannot later reinstall DirectRevenue. "If a user uninstalls us, we're not going to reinstall ourselves ...".

    I have started a new page called webhelper offlimits. This is due to the many search results that use my domain name along with pages to get users to their porn/adware/pay per click sites!

    ========================================
    Webhelper Offlimits Page

    At times when I am searching, I also use my own domain name in the searches and I have found a few at times are using it to try and get users to go to their site that then has nothing to do with the transponders and CWS that I research.
    Below is my listings as I find then in google.com. Use at your own risk or restrict them!

    The transponder has yet another new transponder variant along with a replacement to their buddy.exe called Bolger.dll and Aurora.exe. They are right now foisting this variant being bundled by isearch and using CWS exploits sites to install in stealth!

    Other files included: Poller.exe, uacupg.exe, Nail.exe, thnall1ac.html, DrPMon.dll, svcproc.exe.


    Read about the Bolger.dll and Aurora.exe here

    Update Wednesday, 11 May 2005

    There has been a lot of write ups at security forums dealing with 2-spyware.com owned by Ugnius Kiguolis with a whois listed as Lithuania and email: jurgita @ jurgita.com

    Jurgita is also what a user at many of the forums uses and states their email is jurgita @ jurgita.com.
    Here is the deal. I have always stated in my criteria for adding sites to my different lists that:

    1. Any site that directly or indirectly, with or without the end users permission or knowledge installs adware, trackware, controlware, or anything that collects, tracks, and/or transmits the end users personal, private, and computer information to one or more controlling servers or is affiliated with those that foist adware, malware, spyware,exploits, or hijacking of users browsers.

    2. All sites that belong to a site that deals with adware and especially any site that offers security software and/or help with adware/spyware wiill all be listed.

    New Transponder site to watch for - MANMEDNW.NET

    I just ran a whois for for direct-revenue.com and it lists them and their abetterinternet.com for the same IP, however a new one is listed:MANMEDNW.NET.

    Whois shows domains by proxy right now so the owners can be hidden and the only page so far only shows "welcome".

    Why do I say transponder? Most of their sites have always been kept in the same IP addresses.

    direct-revenue.com 64.124.153.144
    abetterinternet.com 64.124.153.144
    manmednw.net 64.124.153.144

    IP block data
    Direct Revenue INAP-NYM-DIRECTREV-1466 (NET-64-74-242-0-1)
    64.74.242.0 - 64.74.242.255

    MANMEDNW.NET Created on: 12-Mar-05

    This can mean only 1 of 2 things. The plan on creating a new variant (they normally name it after a site), or they plan on creating another IPinsight sentry stub like farmmext.exe, alchem.exe, belt.exe, conscorr.exe variant where they name the file after a website yet never place any pages on the website except to say unerconstruction, welcome, etc.

    Updated Information:

    Just got off the phone with Charles Mullaney of pajamaexecutive.com and he was able explain because he is not a programmer, when he posted his reguest at Rentacode.com for an activeX component that was like spyware, he did not know that that type of wording is a No No in the Anti-spyware community. Of the 2004 request, the activeX was never created for him.

    Both Clear2close.com/net ( Cmark and Associates) and Charles Mullaney pajamaexecutive.com are legit sites and business that can safely be used.

    I just came accross a site called aurora.com. Good news is they are not part of the Direct-Revenue Transponder Gang and that is why they never were placed in my transponder sites listing. Bad news is because of their name, which by the way they had the domain before the transponder gang like those of the CWS gangsters use names that are already being used to confuse the users who have been infected by their adware.

    So for all concerned, I want it to be known that aurora.com is NOT A TRANSPONDER SITE!

    Here is their press release message about the transponder gang

    On 24 May 2005, SpywareWarrior Blog ran an article on Direct-Revenue'.com's AbetterInternet.com (a division of Direct-Revenue) on a cease and desist letter from Better Internets Lawyer to Sunbelt Software about their Anti-spyware software called CounterSpy.

    From the C&D letter,Sara Edelman of the lawyer firm of Davois & gilbert LLP made some statements I just have to make a write up here on my take on this issue.

    Understanding Direct-Revenue.com & aBetterInternet.com EULA's
    Throughout the Direct-Revenue Transponder Gangs history, they have made constant changes to their MANY EULAs (End User License Agreement). What this means is that a user had better read very carefully any EULA that comes from this adware marketing group as there are some important items that may change your mind about installing their adware.

    Direct-Revenue's Ad Policy vs What They Really Do!

    Direct-Revenue states in their Ad Policies PDF file that advertisers cannot advertise anything that cannot be viewed by anyone under 18. They state no pornographic content as an example. So if that is so, then why even today May 3, 2005, they are still running ads that contain pornographic content??

    Lest we forget! I just read a blog entry over at SpywareWarrior Blog entitled "More on Netscape and Spyware" which led me to digging back in my older write ups on the Transponder Gang here in 2003 entitled "Thank the Dashbar for Todays Spyware Toolbars"

    Webhelper CWS Sites Lists Updates 6 April 2006

    Text format:
    http://webhelper4u.com/CWS2/cwslists/cwsbyip.txt

    http://webhelper4u.com/CWS2/cwslists/cwsalpha.txt

    Excel Spreadsheet format: contains complete histories

    http://webhelper4u.com/CWS2/cwslists/cwsmasterlist.xls Size 972KB

    In the spreadsheet, I have all new ones under the Sites Added April 2006 tab


    This also includes the highconvert.com/instllme John Miller aka sp2f(word).biz new sites, vip01.biz to vip15.biz. I will go into more detail later but we must block the IP as the files all come from that and is called from traffweb.biz and installs desktop hijack for alfacleaner and drops what we call the BigBlue identity theft keyloggers named for the IBM000#.dll files and transmits to the instme.biz IP via FTP the users email logins, passwords and protected storage data. They are right now in the middle of changing their methods and I have been watching them in real time That is how far ahead of them I am now compared to last year. Like the transponder gang of old, if they sneeze I am going to know it.

    The JFP Group tab is the John Miller, Nick Fedorov, Vasiliy Pupkin. The cactus tab is the traff4all,game4all aka vxiframe crew.

    As a treat in August of 2005, we uncovered a document in Russian at instme.biz and just last Friday at highconvert.com we snagged an updated copy of how they operated in Russian (Sunbelt-software has many who speak a lot of languages )

    August 2005
    http://www.webhelper4u.com/CWS2/jcactusdimpy/crims.pdf
    April 2006
    http://www.webhelper4u.com/CWS2/jcactusdim..._Adware_v01.pdf

    Anyway, it refers to the yapsearch.com which also includes the yapbrowser.com which they bill it as safe:

    "..There is a 100% guarantee no system infection will occur when using our software. YapBrowser is the only browser which gives you safe search and browsing capabilities..."

    The install popup will get you:

    YapBrowser is FREE,
    thanks to Zango. Why? Because it’s paid for by advertising.

    Now the document in Russian on highconvert that runs the worst exploits and has all the traffweb and james wurster sites and also deals in kiddie porn at their russian sites along with identity theft key loggers and wmf exploits has Zango on board with them.

    As I use to ssay I am the Keeper of the Internet Histories and the Webhelper sees all!

    I tried to load the alpha list from webhelper4u directly into my program but saw these 3 little issues:

    line(62) Invalid name has Path/ 195.225.176.28/search.php
    line(176) Invalid name has Path/ 97178.www2.ninoa.com/2js.txt
    line(2660) Invalid name has Path/ letgosearch/com

    The first 2 contain slash with page info, the 3rd has a / where a dot should be.
