The sunbeltblog id theft saga continues…

It looks as though CoolWebSearch has issued a release about the massive identity theft ring that their product name has featured so prominently in. They are 1) denying that it is related to their tool and asking for evidence that it does so they may pursue the issue (fire employees/contact FBI), 2) considering lawsuits against all outlets that said they were responsible. 3)They try to clarify how to determine what traffic is related to CoolWebSearch.

Sunbelt blog has the details

Coolwebsearch also says that many hijackers get confused with their software.

When this first came out, sunbeltblog reported that it was discovered during a coolwebsearch investigation. They later tried to make it clear that it didn’t appear related (but they were still investigating.)
