I have never heard of it, but I need to post. I downloaded Flock about a month ago to use as a now and then browser. I get bored so I use firefox3.0 the most, k-meleon and Opera. I have not been infected with more than one trogan in eight months. Three weeks ago i was browsing with flock on a site named buddytv.com. It seems safe to me, I clicked on a link, and spysweeper told me i had a problem. long story short, saw av2009 telling me to download it because i was infected. Twenty trogans and some adware. Did a hijack log and i was clean. Two days ago browsing with flock watching a football video on ESPN.com. Almost the same thing. Ten trogans and adware. Twice browsing with flock at web sites that should be secure. ESPN? Used flock maybe three to four hours a week? THOUGHTS? I won't use it again, uninstalled it. I don't know what to make of it other than goodbye flock.
