Spywareinfo Domain Now Linking Rogues

The domain spywareinfo.com once was one of the main sites to help with stopping spyware and helping people remove spyware. Once a good source of information and news, it began a slow decline in 2006 when the owner Mike Healan disappeared from the net for personal reasons. The domain was bought recently and is now hosting links to undesirable removal programs, including Antivirus 2009.

Spywareinfo's legacy still lives on. The forums were moved to their own domain and can be found at spywareinfoforum.com . An archive of the old spywareinfo site can be found at spywareinfoforum.info. While archive of spywareinfo is mostly old and out of date, the forums are current , up to date and a good place to go if you need help.
