Comodo kicks SetupAHost to the curb

Good news gang … I was informed by Comodo that they have revoked all certificates issues to the WinFixer/SetUpAHost … I know it’s only a small victory but it causes them to look elsewhere, and I’m sure it won’t take them long to establish another bogus setup …


In other related news … remember how long it took to get ValueClick to drop it’s association with WinFixer/SetupAHost?
Well it seems yesterday was a really bad day for ValueClick!


The FTC on Monday fined online advertiser ValueClick $2.9 million for sponsoring deceptive online advertisements, and not adequately securing customers’ personal information … [report here]


And then on the same day … “eBay dumps ValueClick” in favor of it’s own in house advertising … ouch!


While the $2.9 million fine may not mean much to the company, combined with the above and another report that states …


The ValueClick stock hit its 52 week high of 36.70 in May and set its 52 week low of 16.31 today” … wow!!! think about that if you were a stockholder …
