VX2.betterinternet and Bundleware Infestations on the RiseMarch 8, 2008 – 3:01 PM
“Over the past month, I have seen an increase in infestations by a group called Bundleware.com which with the signature of Ad-aware calling it VX2.BetterInternet objects. Until last night, I believed it was wrong to label Bundelware with the VX2 Transponder signature as their methods were different from what I could see. Not so now however!After running tests on one of their programs called SpyBan from SpyBan.net I now see why so much of the Better Internet Win32 BI Application and Bi Transponder variants show up with object comments pointing to Bundleware, Look2Me, and SimilarSingles. It is because that at the time of installing any software from that belongs to Nictech Networks, the first thing it does is access the Internet at the time of install and install one of the cab files directly from abetterinternet.com.
I officially add Nictech Networks and their sites to my Transponder Gang Listings.NetPal of Mindset Internactive that had once worked with the VX2 Transponders are also again foisting the Bi transponder variants as is Nictech Networks. Once the Better Internet Transponders are installed they start using their own ad servers from abetterinternet.com and offeroptimizer.com (Both being owned by the VX2 Corporation aka Better Internet Inc. aka Direct-Revenue.com).
Here are my sites to stay away from and their software not to install.
