Exclamation BT Messenger Contains Spyware

sponsored links

 
The new BT Messenger contains Aureate spyware. If you use this or any other 'Messenger' then run Ad-aware - that'll cure it.

Oh yes they are. Spyware sends details of your surfing habits back to BT or to anyone who's software you are using that contains spyware. They can then use this information to 'target' you in any marketing/sales pitch they may wish to make. Collecting information is costly, not everyone wants to answer b**** and probing questions about their habits. Spyware does it for them - and you aren't even aware of it. For more details have a look here - ***********.spychecker.com/spyware.html


Just who are the 'we' you refer too? Per chance you are chatting brown stuff, collectively of course!!

Not into competitions with 'faceless types' - nothing to prove.
Enjoy my reply.
