Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
A old version of Google search bar for browsers had that feature...
I visited a iPage site w/ a warning of the "yellow links" so I asked him for more info - he directed me to the iPage site below for more info. this guy will give you code that you can put on your iPage site that will detect if the browser's puter contains the "virus". also has info on how ppl might have installed this "virus" and shocked me that.
Promotes the darn thing! guess I won't be downloading anything from them anymore!.
- the code to use to warn visitors if they have the stuff installed on their puters.
- more info on scumware disinfection stuff.
- history of the scumware.
- the above code in action.
Hope this helps everyone! I am curious to know what everyone things of using these tools - do we really need them? I've only had one customer complain that she had it on her puter...
Dowload.com do not promote scumware.May be one of the software thats for download in their iPage website has one of those...
Well, I shouldn't always believe what I read...but here's the original comment I read about download.com....
This can be found here:.
I do stand corrected because the link the above iPage site provided to prove their point shows download.com no longer has this piece of software ("KaZaa Media Desktop") available..
Correction - the link they had was wrong - a search for kazaa produced this:.
And there is a disclaimer that I think infers the "feature" still exists - but hey, at least there is a disclaimer!..
Ahhh now I remember.I think your client had Kazaa installed.Kazaa has a spyware called Toptext which underlines with a yellow line and makes a link.The topic came up during a discussion on file sharing programs.(.
I wouldnt agree with the views of the website(scumware.com),Cnet cannot be held responsible for helping the virus spread thorugh the software...
