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.

Their business is based on unethical tricks. They are not ethical people. If there is any possible way to continue getting away with their unethical tricks without getting caught, they will do it. No surprise there indeed.
promises and "settlements"?
What does it take to get these bastards thrown in jail?
I smell political contributions and/or connections.
Re: promises and
I dont smell that at all. You dont get thrown in jail for stuff like that. Without lots of legal hassle first.
