Subject: RE: [Maybe Spam] Spyware Adware URL lists

Spybot Search & Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.net) 
maintains such a
list as part of their free anti-spyware product.  It is intended to be
incorporated into Windows hosts or lmhosts files and resolve 
qdn for such
sites to  Since it is a plain text file, using it 
in another way
should be fairly trivial.

Which is what I do here. During login scripts, users get force fed a hosts
file with this stuff in it. Why? Because my squid proxy has been sitting in
my office for over a year waiting for me to get back to it :) 

The ONLY person to EVER complain about this...... the president of the
company. :/

I told him tough poopie. He is only the president,.... I'm the sysadmin! :-P
