Sunbelt acquires Eric L. Howes
When I first met Eric L. Howes participating in DSLReports.com forums I knew immediately he had deep a passion for helping others. At that time, I was preparing a document for the Federal Trade Commission detailing my experiences fighting spyware and recommending solutions. Eric volunteered to help proof my paper and provided outstanding feedback. It wasn’t until later I found out he wasn't just some guy helping online. Turns out, he was teaching business and technical writing at the University of Illinois and already knew a thing or two about spyware.
Over the years, Eric has spent his spare time picking apart spyware, exposing the methods used and even tracking the sources. He has freely shared his research with AntiSpyware companies like ours and publicly on forums like SpyWarrior.com. He’s most widely known for his list of Roque/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites as well as maintaining a list of sites for your browser to block called IE-SPYAD.
