    Merijn ceases development of CWShredder

    Fairly depressing news, this, but here's an article about CWShredder and Merijn, its author. Here's a longer article I missed while in Oz, from The Register.

    Let's hope someone else can carry on his excellent work?

    That's really depressing.... This hijacker has given me (and my users) endless grief - I've come to rely on CWShredder.... What to do?

    Lock down IE so your users can't install anything. Or switch to another browser.

    Well, if that is not feasible you're looking at longer and longer recovery times as CWS becomes more out of date compared to the new variations of the trojan.
