    Ezula . Com (IE 5.5)

    I'm trying to locate some RELIABLE information on spyware from Ezula.com. From what little I know, it can come in the proverbial backdoor. <img src=/S/hiding.gif border=0 alt=hiding width=70 height=24> We think it came in unknowingly when a user downloaded some screensavers from Thememaker.com.

    So, does anyone know about Azula.com or Thememaker.com? <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> Who knows, maybe the two sites work together. Or, maybe Thememaker is passing it on without knowing about it. I know that our McAfee didn't detect it. I would appreciate some information on the product(s).

    And, yes, in our tight-control environment it should not have been downloadable but it was done on a new PC with a test image. <img src=/S/bif.gif border=0 alt=bif width=70 height=28>

    Re: Ezula . Com (IE 5.5)

    A search at Google yeilded tons of results, several refer to how to clean your system of this bug, and how to deal with it's effects. I would categorize it with Gator, When U, and other spyware apps, none of which I worry about, since I use and regularly update AdAware.

    As to obtaining more information, one good resource is Spyware Info, a site dedicated to the abolishment of spyware everywhere.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Ezula . Com (IE 5.5)

    Hi, Loretta ~

    In the April 22 issue of PC Magazine there was a Spyware: It's Lurking on Your Machine article and a good head-to-head spyware detect app review.

    In the detailed table of common and serious forms of spyware on the loose, eZula/TopText is listed as a moderate to severe nuisance and danger level as it alters web pages to add new links from selected phrases to sponsors
