Interesting Post regarding IE and Microsoft AntiSpyware


Just read this article :

http://www.bbspot.com/News/2005/01/microsoft_antispyware.html

This is a hoax ofcourse not true (BBlog is a site that provides humor via interesting concoctions). There is (obviously) no truth to this .. IE does NOT get detected as Spyware by Microsoft AntiSpyware software and it will not be removed. The funniest comment in the post was :

"It shows how powerful our AntiSpyware program is," said Weatherbee. "Not only is it able to remove spyware from the system, but also the source of most spyware. Our competitors can't match that."

Do not get deceived by this, but it is quite amusing 🙂 The AntiSpyware is in beta and does have issues, but this certainly is NOT one of them.

Just updated my POST to give an accurate description of the story. It is intended to be funny, not an actual news report !

  1. It’s not so much a hoax as it is satire. See also the article "Microsoft Purchases Evil From Satan". BBSpot has provided many hours of amusement for me.

    Just a simple question regarding all this spyware stuff: next generation of internet explorer will support current architecture of plugins and BHO’s? I mean the extensibility model will be COM-based, we’ll have same COM interface to implement deskbands, BHO’s will be still there? Or should we expect major changes for all these?
