CoolWebSearch found in massive spyware ring

Sunbelt Software recently reported to the FBI evidence that shows CoolWebSearch is in a massive spyware ring where private information such as user names, passwords, chat sessions, bank information are stored and uploaded to servers. The FBI responded and are working on the case.

Note that there is a LOT of bank information in here, including one company bank account with over US$350,000 and another small company in California with over $11,000 readily accessible. This list goes on and on and on. Of course, there’s also eBay accounts and much more.
