ValueClick cuts ties with the WinFixer Group

There has been no official notice yet but it looks like ValueClick has severed it’s ties with the WinFixer Group.


I have checked quite a few of the links that I had previously mentioned [1] [2] [3] and they now no longer redirect to “adfarm.mediaplex.com”.

now redirects to: (URLs disabled)
hxxp://www.winantispyware.com/download/2007/index.php?mtrt=swp_was_common&aid=swp_was7&lid=3345&affid=pp_1594734724&p=was&ax=1&ed=1&ex=1


Although it took 25 days since the suits were contacted at ValueClick, this is great news for the end-user. Hopefully the rough treatment by myself and others [1] [2] caused them to cleaning up their act. I imagine this also has a lot to do with their pending FTC investigation.

  1. Interesting. It’s time to start monitoring the site’s traffic rankings, and watch for changes (and any reappearance of mediaplex)
