Secure Shield fake rogue traps fake cleaners

Here is a funny story about a new rogue that does NOT exist: Secure Shield. Read how it was propagating from blogs to fake free cleaners.

Users should not trust cleaners promoted by affiliates business plan.

Thats one way of catching Rogue Cleaners. ;D

It might be OT but related.

Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued a guideline that point out the application of federal law against deceptive advertising.

What's the punishment for not complying? The FTC could issue a warning letter, or pursue corrective action including a fine of up to $11,000 per violation. Both advertisers (such as a product maker) and endorsers (such as bloggers) may be held liable under the guidelines.

Probably this would apply to all those bloggers who blatantly advertised a remover/cleaner for something that does not exist aka Secure Shield.

A fine would eventually persuade them to forsake this habit. :-TU
