NebuAd, The Reincarnation of Gator Adware?

No Comments

Image

By Spyware News (www.spywarenews.org) – It would seem that NebuAd, the behavioral targeted advertising protocol used by some Internet Service Providers, is basically like a version of Gator that works at the ISP level. For those of you too young to remember, Gator is one of the frontrunners of spyware/adware distribution a few years ago. Their program came bundled in with programs such as download managers and configuration tweakers, and tracked your surfing and browsing patterns so that it can serve targeted advertisements. The company later changed its name from Gator to Claria in order to get rid of their negative image as spyware distributors.

NebuAd is currently under heavy criticism after being revealed to use TCP/IP packet monitoring in order to intercept, modify and alter contents of Internet packets that are being sent and received while consumers are surfing. NebuAd’s sophisticated deep packet inspection capabilities and the fact that consumers are not made aware of its capabilities or even its existence makes it no less than a spyware or malware program.

Despite a number of spyware companies in proliferation, the real piece of information that ties NebuAd with Gator is the leaked information that both Claria and NebuAd share at least 5 VP-level ranking employees.

NebuAd has not denied the presence of said former Claria employees but tried to downplay the involvement by claiming that the two company’s connections are tenuous at best. People are even more suspicious after finding out that NebuAd, like Claria, is based in Redwood City, CA and has registered its domain in June 2006, the exact same month and year when Claria left the adware business. – www.spywarenews.org

Zango Lays Off A Third Of Current Workforce

No Comments

ImageBy Spyware News – According to a recent press release by Zango, the famous adware company has recently terminated the employment of 68 out of the 200 plus people that comprise its total workforce. The lay offs were done as a means to streamline and narrow the company’s goals and focus, hot on the heels of the launch of their new Platrium offering, which is a casual gaming site that entered beta just last month.

Zango spokesperson Steve Stratz has denied rumors that the lay offs were a result of Zango going bankrupt, after their services were met with hostilities, particularly from anti-spyware activists who complain that Zango’s obstrusive pop-up serving software were popping up in computers of people who did not volunteer to download it. Additionally, just last year Zango has agree to pay $3 million in order to settle an FTC complaint pertaining to improper or dishonest installations. Another outcome of the fiasco is that Zango has been mandated by state laws to make sure that their software will not be installed without making sure that people have consented, and that they will closely monitor third party distributors in case they try to install the software discreetly.

Platrium, while still an ad server, works on a different way by making free games available to users who install their toolbar. Zango has stated that Platrium is 100% free of pop-up ads, and will instead use a custom “slider” ad, similar to an instant message notification both in terms of size and delivery mode. – www.spywarenews.org
