Another Spysherriff clone



Sunbelt blog has the details on a spysherriff clone called pesttrap (distributed through pesttrap.com). I guess clone is not the best word as they’re calling it a “variant” which suggests to me that perhaps more has changed than just the name. SpySherriff, of course, is one of the “rogue antispyware” programs or “wolves in sheeps clothing” as I like to think of them.


Look for independant reviews of software before you download it to “solve all your windows problems”…
