SpywareFighter Webhelper Is Back

Webhelper has his new site up and you can find it at . One of the spyware makers, DollarRevenue, has been attacking his old site to keep it offline. Most people may not know Webhelper, but his work has been the basis for many antispyware programs, like Ad Aware, and block lists. By attacking him, it seems that DollarRevenue is trying to silence him. This tactic has been used before. Popular antispyware site has been attacked like this before. So has Castle Cops, Spybot Search and Destroy's site, and (the maker of Hijackthis).

Webhelper is currently a senior research analyst for Sunbelt Software, who makes CounterSpy.
