    Need Parasite Clarification
    How is everyone?

    I'm a newbie here, and actually very new to Affiliate Marketing.

    Can someone summarize what link hijaking, parasiting, and this cookie theft are?

    I'm familiar with spyware and cookie deletion, but what is this other stuff?

    If there are some links that i can go to to inform myself about the pitfalls and protection i can use, please post them.

    Thank You,
    Sixeden

    It's hard to summarize all the parasitic activities.

    ParasiteWare™ - is technology (including, but not restricted to, browser helpers, browser plug-ins, toolbars and pop ups/sliders) that knowingly or unknowingly undermines or removes another affiliate's ability to compete by changing, intercepting or redirecting an affiliate link. Parasiteware™ may be installed knowingly or unknowingly by the end user, altering their normal web browser functions and/or installing a third party application that works through the user's altered browser.
    Continued Success,

    are there any instances of Parasiteware for the Mac. Any known Mac attacks?

    Or is it virtually all targeted at windows users?

    Internet Explorer is a big target of the type of "BHOs" (Browser 'Helper' Object) type parasites. I would expect that anyone running IE would be susceptible to at least some of them.
