FTC’s message to Enternet Media has not quite sunk in…



In spite of the FTC’s raid of Enternet Media and charges against them for various details such as deceptive install practices, unfair installation of code, failure to disclose nature of bundled software and furnishing code to others that interferes with the use of the computer… well, Enternet Media seems to be proliferating their wares just fine… in spite of a temporary restraining order. According to Spyware Confidential there are still downloads of searchmiracle/elitebar as written up here.


Sunbeltblog had coverage of this as well. It looks as though the installers exploit a security hole in the browser. It will be interesting to see what’s done to enforce the restraining order….

(I can hear it now – “rogue affiliate acting outside our control…”)
