Another wolf in sheeps clothing to watch for



Wolves in sheeps clothing are the label I give to those rogue antispyware, or antivirus programs that bring pests instead of protect against them, or are otherwise questionable in their tactics. Titan Shield seems to be a new threat on the block in this area, I haven’t seen it first hand yet, but it looks like it is one you’ll want to avoid *(You may want to block antispywarebox(dot)com and titanshield(dot)com if you’re in a position to do such things in your network.)


It’s almost surprising that this kind of thing is still a problem, but it seems that they just keep sprouting up. Anytime you’re considering getting antivirus or antispyware software, DON’T do it because of a popup window, investigate (offline if necessary) some of the legitimate, recommended options. Maybe check it against the list online of rogue antivirus and antispyware and then come to a decision.

Oh, also from Sunbelt blog… they’re talking about a craigslist car ad – on inquiring – the advertisor gave a link purportedly to details/pictures, etc. about a car for sale, the link was to an .exe file. You’ve got to stay vigilent.
