Remember how 180solutions had promised that with their latest rewrite they were absolutely keeping out "rogue" distributors? It has already been shown that this isn't true, but it seems things may be looking even worse for them. Someone who prefers to remain anonymous has submitted a story about a new "browser app" that installs 180solution's "Zango" adware... and also has the rather damning feature of taking over your browser and sending you to child porn sites, no matter where you try to surf online. As the article notes: "It's not like it's a hidden Easter egg, for God's sake - you come across it by using the primary function of the browsing application. You know, the big, green "Go" button." If 180solutions can't even stop distributors like this one from offering their software, you have to wonder which "rogue" distributors they're actually stopping.
