The latest on real estate recordings and new technology from the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds in Lowell
I never heard of Eliot Spitzer until this morning…and now, he is my hero! Spitzer is the Attorney General of New York and he has decided to wage war against Internet scoundrels. Yesterday, Spitzer filed a lawsuit accusing a New York based company, Direct Revenue, of secretly installing spyware on the computers of Internet users. Spitzer (my hero) claims Direct Revenue installed spyware on more than 150 million computers… then bombarded them with pop-ups. The way it is done is simple… Direct Revenue offers innocent Internet users free games or screen savers. If a user decides to accept…watch out…when he downloads, he gets more than just the freebie game… he also “unknowingly” gets irritating spyware. Once his computer is infected with Direct Revenue’s spyware, they’ve got him and the pop-ups start. Eliot Spitzer has accused Direct Revenue of “deceptive practices, false advertising, trespassing onto computers and computer tampering. “Way to go ES!” Anyone who has ever been harassed by pop-ups knows why Eliot is my new hero.
