Webroot talks about W32/Casonline adware

Here's another advisory from Webroot about the supposed "free lunch" of Torrent Sites: users may get popups for W32/Casonline adware.  The blog article by Dancho Danchev is here.But, yet it seems from the blog entry here that the problem with Torrent users is that they can't say no to anything.

It's still true that young people overseas are finding the only way they can make a lot of money is to entice others into doing stupid things online.

Thanks for posting this information Bill. Hopefully European visitors to your blog will be on the lookout for this type of adware.

Here in the US Webroot threat researchers have discovered the ZeuS crimeware in a spam email message that appears to be sent from Verizon.
