Security Researchers Still Finding Problematic Zango Installs

from the no-surprise-there dept

On Friday, we mentioned how the FTC had finally convinced Zango to pay up and settle while promising that they would stop their sneaky install practices. Of course, given the company’s earlier similar promises and denials of wrongdoing, this was greeted with plenty of reasonable skepticism. Someone has pointed us to yet another report of Zango’s sneaky install practices that seem quite similar to what they’ve been doing for a while. Now, it’s quite likely that this is from before the agreement, but at the very least they haven’t done much to clean up their act heading into the settlement, and security researchers should be watching pretty damn closely to see if they live up to their promises.
