A rather surprising find

After my blog post earlier today on a Spyware Soft Stop, our Eric Howes made a surprising discovery.

Look at this screenshot:

As you can see, it found six files and identified them as various types of malware.

The problem is, not only are those files just junk files (not malware), but the Spyware Soft Stop application itself installed the files.

That's right, this application planted the very files it claimed to detect as malware.
