SpyBouncer

by Lucia Danes - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

SpyBouncer does not use false positives, provides updates, and really finds spyware and adware parasites as well as some widely spread malicious threats. Nevertheless, we DO NOT recommend purchasing and using this program.

The reason why SpyBouncer is considered to be a corrupt product is aggressive and deceptive advertising campaign running on a web site selling SpyBouncer. This site, www.goggle.com (not to be confused with Google.com, a popular Internet search engine), is a project of SRC Technologies, a company that makes SpyBouncer.

The site displays an image on its first page. This image is designed to look like a scan progress box, which purportedly checks the visitor’s system. The fixed number of detected threats (29 cookies, 2 processes, 68 registry keys, 14 files and 3 folders) is shown. However, it has nothing to do with the actual system, as the site does not run any scans at all. The image has the “DEMO” word in it. However, it is definitely not enough to explain the visitor whether his or her system is being actually scanned or not. See screenshots provided below.

www.goggle.com also serves aggressive advertisements. Once accessed, it pops up several commercial ads. One of them is a “security alert” message, which says that “your computer is vulnerable to receiving excessive popup ads”. It asks to install a third-party pop-up blocker in order to block advertisements. If the user agrees, the ad opens a new web browser window with a site selling QuickShield, a notorious pop-up blocker. See other screenshots below.

It must be noted that the address of the www.goggle.com site is very similar to www.google.com belonging to Google, a popular Internet search engine. Such resemblance is not accidental. SpyBouncer’s vendor has registered the site’s name deliberately in order to attract more visitors. A one-letter typo brings thousands of new clients.

The free version of SpyBouncer refuses to remove any malware it finds. It asks to register and purchase the full product.

Domains associated with SpyBouncer are spybouncer.com, goggle.com and stingware.com.
