    A brand new downloadable app. Could the testing gurus do their thing and report back and let us know if they are clean or dirty?

    They are a subsidiary of HotBar.

    Yes they are a rogue theftware application and you can bet they infest millions of shoppers systems with their malware. Since they steal our referral cookie at the Point of Sale by tricking folks with Freebee Smilies. can Haiko find a suitable one for showing our displeasure?

    OK all you FeedFreek AM's and SE spammers here comes roving BHO feeds to hijack sales. You can bet this operation also spams the serps with doorway page crap and then pops on both Google/Froogle, merchant and affiliate sites...
