    Hi Blackspear,

    The program probably connects to merijn.org which has been abandoned.

    If you are infected with CWS feel free to download the latest version in this thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=14086

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Many thanks for your reply Pieter, do you know why the site has been abandoned? DOS attack?

    Cheers :D

    Hi Blackspear,

    Yes, they DDOS'ed the SpywareInfo server, where merijn.org was hosted (and others):
