OT - EVERYONE: Spyware issue. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IS AT RISK!

I was just sent an email at work about this CoolWebSearch spyware program that infects Internet Explorer and your computer. What it actually does is sends your personal login information from ANYTHING YOU DO ONLINE and sends it to a log file in this remote server (the log files contain chat information, eBay logins, YOUR HOME ADDRESS, BANK INFORMATION, LOGINS TO YOUR BANK IF YOU USE ONLINE BANKING!)

I have a website where you can delete this program, which can be found here.

To read up about the findings of this article, read about it here.



I'm just passing along information to keep you safe. Keep it going.



I'm crossposting this like it's going out of style. Sorry if you see this more than once.
