    180 Solutions Deep in the Porn Industry
    I never realized this until tracking some stuff down with them promoting downloads to kids. These classy guys also promote porn, porn you download from the zango server! Maybe this is common knowledge, but past that bit about the childporn browser, I thought that was a one off.

    It isn't.

    The links look like

    http://cds.zango.com/download.aspx?I...DLINKINGTOPORN

    It loads up windows media player and then tries to install a license from
    http://content.licenseacquisition.org/php/prompt.php

    the url the content is at is
    http://cached.licenseacquisition.org...XX/CONTENTNAME

    licenseacquisition.org is owned by 180 solutions, so the porn is coming straight from them.

    It will then prompt you that this content is only available if you allow the install of the seekmo search assistant. Seekmo is what they are pushing as the key to free content - not zango... kinda odd. Has the zango name already been ruined like n-case?

    So the stuff does prompt you at least, but the wording is the misleading wording that ben has ripped apart before.

    180 Solutions is just an all around classy company.

    It became obvious for me the day 180Solutions took over CDT in Canada one of their rogue distributors deeply involved in porn with CoolWebSearch and others.
    "CoolWebSearch may redirect your web browser's home page to CoolWebSearch.com, Cool-Search.ws, or other affliates. CoolWebSearch may also generate pornographic pop-up advertisements on your computer. "

    Good grief...

    Sounds like they ripped off their playbook from the Slimeware Corporation's Porno-Pops program!
