Badware- Jessica Simpson Screensaver

The good folks at stopbadware.org have released some interesting new reports about the current crop of spyware. Team Taylor Made’s Jessica Simpson Screensaver does a little more then entertain you while your computer is idle. It disables your AV, redirects your URLs, and even has a stealth dialer to rack up charges to your phone bill!

There is some interesting research going on here and it will become more interesting when they begin looking at some of the crackz/warez web sites which install lots of fun things via IE holes.
