Tracking down Spyware Spreaders;)

In a very fascinating article, this author provides a video (wmv format - ick) of live spyware installations through IE/Windows. The author reveals some interesting facts like pay-per-install rates and suggests a way of tracking these people down.

Yes, the author says that IE/WindowsXP-SP2 isn't vulnerable to what he's showing... provided the user is using all the security features.

And, of course... there are other examples of spyware that he didn't test.

But I think the article is interesting nonetheless...

What do you think?
