<How sick is our world that these malware writers have to play on our compassion for Hurricane victims?  Read this Washington Post article and see how Spyware isn’t just pop ups anymore…this is BIG BUSINESS.  Sick big business as well.  To the folks behind this one….sick guys….really sick… you know how much small businesses are going to need geek/IT help in the coming months and all you guys can do is to code up stuff like this?  How about donating to the red cross?  How about volunteering to help a small business owner displaced by Katrina reset up MX records, A records?  How about doing something useful instead of this stuff?  Okay rant box off>
