    Info ebay are allowing spyware/bloatware products in their adverts - proof inside

    ebay are allowing spyware/bloatware products in their adverts, I just logged onto ebay to check a couple of listings and what do I see but a big advert for spyware or more likely bloatware. this is quite a big thing saying the amount of people who will fall for this![Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    All ok here too.
    I see those kind of adverts quite a lot on customers PCs and it's normally due to a rogue browser extension.

    lol, all checked on my system but if you look it was an advert run through adchoices and it may have got through their net (ebays quality control). I check my system every 2 days and I have multiple things protecting it, much more than the normal pc. it was definitely there on ebay itself
