sleeping Rip Van Winkle anti-virus execs wake up !

Hi Folks,

Newsflash ! 
- Anti-virus company executives notice the real world !

Rogue product ads on F-Secure, McAfee, Trend Micro searches -
Angela Moscaritolo - April 17, 2009

The magazine for "Security Professionals" placed this article right above a large google scamware ad for Shield Deluxe !  No, they did not put through my post (at least not yet) pointing this out .. however now the ad I see is Trend Micro.  Update: now I see the bogus "Top Ten Anti-Virus Software Read Reviews..." ad, so the change was from Google, not a block.  You can read about this particular scamware on Wilders, Web of Trust and even the comments on SiteAdvisor.
