Paltalk Spyware Alert

If you use Paltalk.

Paltalk is voice video text chat ware
Which is used by millions of users around the world

Can you live without Paltalk ? Are you addicted to paltalk ?????? Think about it?????? Are you? ...........How long have you been on pal?

IF YOU HAVE PALTALK realese 5.1 build 523 you have spyware on your computer.

THIS MEANS it's a key logger, it's recording everything you type the name of the file is bthook.dll and if you remove it, paltalk won't run. I actually found the file with my security program first, and it labeled it as a harmful file . read this: http://kola.us/PaltalkSpyware.htm

and http://www.pestpatrol.com/PestInfo/M/morheus.asp

I found these files after I found their keylogger and went looking for information these sites. Paltalk is currently installing Spyware on everyone's computer that downloads the program. This Spyware is located in C:\Paltalk\BtHook.dll authored by SteamCast Networks and is named Morpheus 1.9. If you remove BtHook.dll Paltalk will NOT run. PestPatrol will allow you to quarantine or remove all SpyWare.

Morpheus Summary: StreamCast Networks counts the number of times its file swappers visit high-profile shopping sites. The company has begun installing a Web browser add-on that sends some Morpheus users on an invisible Web detour aimed at capturing data about file swappers' surfing habits. Don't just take my word for it get a free copy of PestPatrol and see for yourself.

Thus, when a file swapper visits a site such as Radioshack.com, eBay.com or a handful of others, their computer visits a separate site behind the scenes before loading the final destination site. Those separate servers, run by marketing companies including Be Free, count how many times Morpheus users stop by. Source

Paltalk also installs a Spy cookie called Mediaplex.com Spyware Cookie. This one can be removed and you will still be able to use paltalk. Both compromise your privacy. In short every word you use is recorded. Every site you go to is recorded! Write to paltalk and complain!!!

........... if they want concrete proof, they can go to http://www.seememe.com and download Security Scanner and run it. It will tell them what the file is and that it's a harmful file on the computer .

............................ free chat programs need to be supported with commercialism by popups but they certainly don't need to contain key loggers that record every key stroke their customer's type ...............Basically either pal stops this or we should all find another chat program!!!!!! E-mail pal to complain!!! www.paltalk.com

Why are they tracking your web activites and just who are they passing that info along tooo?

Please pass along to your friends list or email list!!!!!!!!
