+ - Interview with an Adware Developer->

Submitted by
Arslan ibn Da'ud
Arslan ibn Da'ud writes: "Bruce Schneier has an interesting interview with a developer of adware who explains, in gory detail, how Internet Explorer can be exploited to show adware. Once exploited, the ad-showing software embeds itself using a variety of techniques making removal extremely difficult. Interesting note in that the developer targets IE users because they "tend to be the less savvy chunk of the market", in addition to being the biggest."
