|A Little Bit of Seduction for Spyware!|
|by Steve Gibson, Gibson Research Corporation|
The image above depicts the beginning of a typical spyware dialog. This screen shot was taken from our research into the operation and capabilities of the Aureate/Radiate software.
Our plans for the Internet Spyware Analyzer
I built it at the beginning of my research into the Aureate system in anticipation of being asked to produce proof of whatever malicious behavior I uncovered. It was my intention to allow members of the press and technical analysts to receive a complete demonstration of the Aureate system's malicious capabilities over the Internet. Though Aureate would be foolish to do so, if they should deny any of my findings, I can easily produce any required degree of proof in that fashion.
This Internet Spyware Analyzer is a potent tool for researching and uncovering the detailed behavior and characteristics of any Internet-communicating software under analysis, however, it has little application beyond that. Since we have no intention or desire to promote or encourage the hacking and malicious use of Internet-based systems, the Analyzer will be used as an internal analysis tool belonging to Gibson Research Corporation and will not be made available to the public.
However, the point is . . . this tool's RESULTS certainly WILL be made available under no uncertain terms. You may rest assured that we have and can easily develop whatever technology is required, now or in the future, to track down and nail any spyware system believed to be conducting clandestine communications across the Internet.
future users of the Internet backchannel
will appreciate the substantial benefits
of adopting and abiding by the articles
of the Code of Backchannel Conduct.
