Two new rogue antispyware apps

Two new ones...

Spyware Knight

spywareknight(dot)com

SpySoldier

spysoldier(dot)com

Both domains registered through EST Domains.

Complaint about aggressive, deceptive pop-up advertising for both programs here.

Web page advertising both here.

Both have been entered into the CounterSpy database, and both are now listed on the SpywareWarrior Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware page here.

These seem related to another rogue, SpywareSheriff— and even the testimonial pages are ripped-off from download.com:

You can more screenshots of both programs here.

Obviously, please stay clear of these rogue sites and the malware they spawn. If you are infected, the free trial versions of CounterSpy (or the CounterSpy 2.0 beta) should remove them just fine.
