iWebTunes/iWebMusic Forced Shut

As we've long been aware of the kind of dodgy service that iwebtunes or iwebmusic offers, it's just about time they are taken out of business.

Here's the news:
The US Federal Trade Commission reported yesterday that a court had shut down three Internet companies on charges of distributing spyware without users' consent. Enternet Media, Inc. and Conspy & Co. Inc, based in California, and Iwebtunes, based in Ohio, had their assets frozen.

As InternetNews would say:
"These guys are dirty," said James Manning, spyware research director for Aluria Software. He said iWebTunes sends users a snippet of JavaScript code to add to their own sites' code. But it includes not only links for SearchMiracle, purveyor of the Elite Toolbar and Crazywinnings, but also update links. Every time someone hits a site containing iWebTunes JavaScript, he's hit with more stealthy installs.

Rejoice, everyone! We've won one battle against spyware. Sadly, there are still more to fight on.
