  • This guy is my hero

    http://philosecurity.org/2009/01/12/...-adware-author

    I pity tha fool who has to deal with malware written by a Scheme programmer...

    but yeah, otherwise an entertaining read about some pretty absurd "adware" techniques.

    This in particular cracked me up:

    S: Do you think that in our society we delude ourselves into thinking we have more privacy than we really do?

    M: Oh, absolutely. If you think about it, when I use a credit card, the security model is the same as that of handing you my wallet and saying, “Take out whatever money you think you want, and then give it back.”
