How many of you are using Aluria to help keep your computer clean of the scumware and spyware?
Last week Aluria decided to stop targetting WhenU with its anti-spyware software. Though the move seemed odd at the time, it has now been made more clear now that Aluria has announced a new partnership with, you guessed it, WhenU.
WhenU has also been known to send its corporate "bullies" to the homes and offices of those that speak out against them. They also have a thing for cloaking thier website in an effort to control the factual information which may be unfavorable to them.
Is Aluria spyware? Probably not, but it is hypocritical to manufacture an anti-spyware utility while at the same time partnering up with the worst offenders. IMO, Alluria has now redefined the meaning of scumware and they are the new definition.
