C++/The making of Scareware
Do you know how the software "scareware" is created? I do know it has something to do with programming.
I'm just curious and wanted to know for educational purposes only. Since I'm a Magician anything that's a secret interest me. There are no books written about the topic on Amazon. It's like a mystery that some how only a few people know about.
I've got some of my own Magic videos online at http://tagged.com/sterlbo
if you want to see them.
"Scareware" is one kind of "rogue software". Essentially programs that generate unsolicited spurious or frivolous messages, usually with the aim of inducing the user to buy a software product that will "solve" the problem.
More information is available in these wiki pages and the references at the end of them.
PS. I've made a note of the link http://tagged.com/sterlbo
