Make lots of money within 45 days

Source: click here

Merry Christmas, I get an email last night promising me I’d be making within 45 days $3500 to $5500 monthly. All I need to do is exactly as the email says. And I’ll know exactly what I’m getting into with no pre-enrollment stage fee. Signed, some guy named Robert Chin. Hey, I might be one of the lucky 200 people able to participate in this program after they ask me some private confidential information like how much the family household income is, how many children we have, what are social security numbers are, right on down to how much hair I have on my pinky toe.

So lets take a look at this first snapshot which starts off the email under Outlook Express:

So how did I get infected in the first place?

Coming to the end of 2005 we’ve observed many folks get infected. Tony Klein has written the de facto answer to the question:

So how did I get infected in the first place?

Bullet number 1: Watch what you download!
“Many freeware programs, and P2P programs like Grokster, Imesh, Kazaa and others are amongst the most notorious, come with an enormous amount of bundled spyware that will eat system resources, slow down your system, clash with other installed software, or just plain crash your browser or even Windows itself. If you insist on using a P2P program, please read This Article written by Mike Healan of fame. It is an updated and comprehensive article that gives in-depth detail about which P2P programs are “safe” to use.”

Bullet number 2: “2.) Go to IE > Tools > Windows Update > Product Updates, and install ALL High-Priority Security Updates listed. If you’re running Windows XP, that of course includes the Service Pack 2! If you suspect your computer is infected with Malware of any type, we advise you to not install SP2 if you don’t already have it. You can post a HijackThis log on our Forums to get free Expert help cleaning your machine. Once you are sure you have a clean system, it is highly recommended to install SP2 to help prevent against future infections.

It’s important to always keep current with the latest security fixes from Microsoft. Install those patches for Internet Explorer, and make sure your installation of Java VM is up-to-date. There are some well known security bugs with Microsoft Java VM which are exploited regularly by browser hijackers. ”

Analyze license agreements for interesting words and phrases!

End user license agreements (EULAs) are the bane of most computer users. No one wants to read through pages and pages of boring text, and many people skip reading them altogether. But it can be dangerous not to read license agreements – you might miss important information about software or bundled components, plus you have no idea what you could be agreeing to.

But now there’s a way of making that much easier.

EULAlyzer – Making it all easy!

EULAlyzer can analyze license agreements in seconds, and provide a detailed listing of potentially interesting words and phrases. Discover if the software you’re about to install displays pop-up ads, transmits personally identifiable information, uses unique identifiers to track you, or much much more.

The Benefits:

  • Discover potentially hidden behavior about the software you’re going to install

  • Pick up on things you missed when reading license agreements

  • Keep a saved database of the license agreements you view

  • Instant results – super-fast analysis in just a second

    When installing software, never just click past the license agreement. Pop it into EULAlyzer, and EULAlyze it!

    EULAlyzer Personal is free for personal and educational use.
