Vonage advertising via spyware

Posted by joy

After reading about Ben Edelman’s latest research concerning Vonage advertising appearing via spyware, I find it hard to believe that no one in Vonage’s marketing department ever, you know, tracked *where* their advertising was appearing.

Shouldn’t an Internet based phone company be Internet savvy?

    Apparently they are, if they’re using every method of spyware available to deploy their ads.

    I’m not condoning spyware, but I feel that users are somewhat complicit in the problem. People should be more proactive in preventing spyware installations on their systems.

    That Vonage deploys their ads on a spyware system seems like good business sense actually, since people likely to have no protections on their PCs are likely to try anything, including VoIP.
