Addendum to 'Freeware with Spyware!'

Just a quick reminder about DLing freeware.

This was
passed onto Paperghost by one of his fellow security researcher at FaceTime. In order to DL a version of Webroot's Spy Sweeper, this site insisted on you also DLing a 'download
manager'. Hmmmm.... betcha can't guess what that wound up being?

See my my forum write up referencing Site Advisor, a tool which may have prevented you from using that freeware site.
