Dear Everybody,

How do you do?

Hi, I am jeremy from Singapore.
Not really any good with computers.
But interested to learn more.

This is actually only one of the limited times, i am posting on a forum anywhere.

Actually google this site, because my uncle had a problem with this ultimate defender trojan.
thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/98811/how-to-remove-ultimate-defender-removal-instructions/

Did a further read up on it at:
http://www.spywareguide.com/product_show.php?id=2904

What happen was it keep prompting my uncle to install this spyware software from www.udefender.com (don't go there) by opening up his web browser every time my uncle click on his desktop. I am thinking how this Nous-Tech Solutions Ltd is acting in a very unhanded and anathema manner.
So i just pop an email to the regulatory agency in my country today and am waiting for a reply.
Just wondering whether there are any actions that can be taken against such a company.

Regards,
Jeremy

PS: if anything seems out of sort with you, it's most probably because I am quite new at all this

Hello everybody,

Thanks for the welcome. :thumbsup:

First question is: is this the right way to keep posting (in regard to forum rules).


Next is the ultimate defender Trojan (is this the right term to refer to this code, i mean what about virus & worm?) I wrote about in my first post.
My local authority, a government ministry dealing with information development (in fact, their name, Information Development Authority) has replied that nothing can be done about this issue on their side because the originating company is in the US. But advise me to contact CERT/CC http://www.cert.org/ at cert@cert.org for advice.

I went to the CERT website and found a 'Vulnerability Remediation' section http://www.cert.org/vuls/ , that had with it a 'vulnerability reporting form' http://www.cert.org/reporting/vulnerability_form.txt . I am thinking of submitting it. Is this the right way to approach this issue?

If I should want to learn more about US laws in regard to computer security and businesses, especially in this type of cases, where would be a good site to go to read up?

And can I do anything about Ultimate Defender (besides bad-mouthing it)?

Regards,
Jeremy
