Spyware commonly found in AdBright Ads

I received this in my inbox today, and I felt it was important
enough to pass along. Since posting here is easier than it would be
to CC everybody in my address book, I have reprinted it here:

Hello badpenny
While surfing today, I got the Spyware "Drive Cleaner"
from an Ad-Brite ad carried on the front page of a fellow
TrEx traffic exchange webmaster. Ad-Brite ads are blocked
by 90% of spyware filters because they are known to be a
major purveyor of Spyware. If you have gotten the "Error
Safe " or "Drive Cleaner" it is most likley coming from
Ad-Brite ads. I have tried to correct the problem and have
the people using this Junk Ad-Service remove the spyware
carrying ads but they refuse. I therefore to protect my
members, will be banning all sites that carry the junk
spyware Ad-Brite ads. If you have this Bogus ad companies
ads on your pages in any NWT sites, please remove them as
I have not decided yet whether I am removing the sites or
the users who insist this ad company is legit.

Ad-Brite is one of the largest purveyors of spyware on the
internet today.

Please refer all your friends to today's post. It is important for people to have this information.
