    Hi All,


    Recently I installed a software "Twister" found in Digital Tools\System\Internet of the August 2004 Digit CD. It installed, without my notice, few spywares and a trojan horse PSW.Briss.D and PSW.Briss.E :evil: :evil:

    I would like to warn my fellow participants here about such spywares present in small and nifty applications like this. :D

    The aforesaid software (twister) searches for your favorite song on the internet and gives you an option to download it. :twisted:

    Whether this process is legitimate or not that is another question. But evil begets evil. That's what is to be learnt from this experience.

    Yes!!!
    I was lucky that nothing untoward happened. I promptly uninstalled the software. I should have read the terms & conditions before installing the software. But who reads them nowadays ?

    Now the question is, don't digit guys verify if the software they are shipping is spyware or not ??? :?
