Malware testing 1.01 -- the Virtual Bouncer test

One test for starters is the "Virtual Bouncer site test". Virtual Bouncer tricks unsuspecting surfers into installing it, applies a restriction that slows the Internet connection to a crawl, and offers a "subscription" for a price to remove the restriction. It has been termed "extortion ware", and is described on Spyware Guide here:

Here is the "Virtual Bouncer site" test (but do not try this until you are ready, as described above):

Go here,

Click on "CLICK HERE TO TRY VIRTUAL BOUNCER NOW".

In our tests, a "Limited" account on a machine with the NTFS file system passes the test -- Virtual Bouncer cannot install.

Try it from an Administrator account and, after the next reboot, you will experience Virtual Bouncer.

Then reformat the hard drive, and reinstall Win XP.

DO NOT TRY ANY OF THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE READ ALL THE POSTS ON THIS BLOG.
