    Cockroach Spyware!

    The latest edition of Fred Langa's newsletter (7-31-03) which doesn't seem to be up on his web site yet, has an article about a spyware thingie called <big>RAPIDBLASTER</big> that has the ability to morph itself (the cockroach term) if you try to remove it. Fred's reader provided the following two links to help us out in the process. I ran AdAware and SpyBot with their latest updates as well as the utility provided by the first of the links. SpyBot seems to be "aware" since I happened to be watching the screen as it ran and saw it checking my system for RapidBlaster. Keep your guard up! Check Fred's site later if you want to read his latest.
