Submission + - Pop-up ad queen caught by the U.S. government, fined $163 million (yahoo.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Fox Van Allen of Tecca, writes: "You've probably never heard the name Kristy Ross before, but we're willing to bet you're very familiar with her work. You may have even given her money. For the last five years (at least), Ross has been flooding the internet with pop-up ad after pop-up ad, all claiming that your computer — yes, yours specifically — is infected with viruses. That's illegal, and it turns out the law has finally caught up to her: The Federal Trade Commission has just fined Ross a staggering $163 million dollars for her crimes."
