Warp2Search Fake DirectX 9 According to the German website dialerschutz there is a spam mail currently being sent out that masks itself as a Microsoft news flash reporting the release of DirectX 9. Translated, the mail reads "Yesterday, 19.04.2002, we completed our DirectX 9.0. In your own interest, you should update your system with this new version as soon as possible. Our free update is available for all operating systems." Of course, this is all a lie. Whoever follows the download link provided is, in reality, downloading a 0190 (pay-per-call) dialer of the company Interfun. Note - When checking the link, I noticed the webmaster account being closed due to spam.

And something else I spotted somewhere... Niscenus will enjoy this one. Why Open Source Software / Free Software (OSS/FS)? Look at the Numbers! OSS/FS has significant market share, is often the most reliable software, and in many cases has the best performance. OSS/FS scales, both in problem size and project size. OSS/FS software generally has far better security, particularly when compared to Windows. Total cost of ownership for OSS/FS is often far less than proprietary software, particularly as the number of platforms increases. These statements are not merely opinions; these effects can be shown quantitatively, using a wide variety of measures. This doesn't even consider other issues that are hard to measure, such as freedom from control by a single source, freedom from licensing management (with its accompanying litigation), and increased flexibility. I believe OSS/FS options should be carefully considered any time software or computer hardware is needed.
