Link: A revenge Zombie is still a Zombie

Permanent article link

Frank Carver is not impressed with anti-spam screensaver. I think there is an additional danger beyond just handling the control over to the corporation.
And that is a danger of somebody hacking the communication/update protocol and substituting the list of hosts. And since the screensaver was installed on purpose, user will ensure that all the firewalls are cleared and will ignore any warnings regarding the program.

On the other hand, the download website already seems down. Did someone perhaps repointed their program back at them? Or was it the Slashdot Effect?
