Hello, yep another newbie done got bit a bit. I think AdWare stopped a download
(html log reports the CLSID and other actions; definitely a learning curve here)

Perhaps I could have SEARCHed the forums on 'website..er..something',
but this might be faster. So, basically, I wanna know.. :blink:

...is there a forum / website for reporting *specific* websites that appear to
like insinuating trojans, spyware, spybots, malware (a lovely moniker if
I ever heard one) ?

...is / are there an investigative tool(s) to perform google/msn/etc.-type
websweeps, not to cache pages but to examine them for links to known
X-ware sites? (ohboy, a new term! maybe...).

...I did not see 'internt.exe' on the list of known X-ware; new?

...when WHOIS fails...where do I go to obtain sysop info?

...or should I just load Linux?

Thanks; I'm sure I'll be perusing the forums here often.

ChicagoJammer,
internt.exe is classified as a known backdoor Trojan Horse by Symantec. So get rid of it.
Search with "internt.exe" on this page and you will get some proof :
http://search.symant...m/us/query.html
I found the same classification at this website :
http://startup.iamno...nternt.exe.html

If you want to protect yourself against bad websites :
Download IESPYAD at https://netfiles.uiu...rce.htm#IESPYAD
Read also the rest of this website, it can be usefull for you.
Download MVPS at http://www.mvps.org/...p2002/hosts.htm
You will be surprised how many bad websites are listed in both files.

The rest of your questions, I can't answer, because I'm not really interested in doing this.
I'm sure that more qualified people than me, have done this already,
because IESPYAD and MVPS have both regular updatings, which proves that one or more persons are already looking for these bad websites on the internet.

Watch your topic at least one week for replies of other members. :)
They might answer the rest of your questions.

Not that I heard of, but an administrator here may want to create a topic for that.

In the Spywatch forums...perhaps a pinned topic might help.

At the homepage of IESPYAD, I expected an email-address or a message box to report bad websites, that weren't listed yet in IESPYAD, but I didn't find it.
I wonder how IESPYAD is updated, if nobody can report these bad websites.

That is a good question. I always assumed that people just sent him links of bad sites. Weird.

cheglabratjoe,
The problem is solved, if you read this :

Eric L. Howes, the developer of IE-SPYAD is a member of this forum:

http://forums.spywar...hp?showuser=152

His email address is on this page:

http://spywarewarrior.com

See near the bottom of the page.  He welcomes emails with information about bad domains and new spyware. 

HTH.  :)
