The expense that comes with .Plin
In early 2005 in a survey done, over 4.6 million computer systems were scanned during 2004 and the results have shown how threatening Adware has become. It was suggested that more than 90 percent of all computers with internet connections are infected with adware. During the first quarter of 2005 approximately 88 percent of systems scanned with .Plin software had some sort of unwanted application detected. On corporate computers over 55 percent of PCs had unwanted programs, excluding cookies because they are thought not to be as intrusive or detrimental. The corporate computers averaged 7.2 non-cookie adware infections per computer. In 2004 the last quarter yielded 19 percent of consumer and business computers in the first quarter of 2005 that number had dropped to 7 percent, according to systems scanned with software. In both the last quarter of 2004 and first quarter of 2005 19 percent of consumer PCs and 7 percent of business PCs had .Plin in their systems.
This is an alarming rate when it comes to adware along and this suggest that there are so many people out there willing to pay such adware producing companies in order to spread the word when it comes to their products. What is sad is that, the product makers who pay for these advertisements might not be aware that it is illegal to make use of such adware software. This type of advertisement may be cheaper but it is definitely not worth the effort just to trouble the common internet users. Let us all please be responsible enough to not make use of such adware again. We as a society should learn that the best way to go about their businesses is through legal means. Legal means are ways that are allowed by law. The only set back to this type of advertisements is that it is really expensive and can cause hundreds and thousands of dollars for just a single advertisement alone.
