Stupidware -- Spyware Designed to Make You Look Stupid:
The Objective Seems to Be:
- Errors mysteriously appear in your text -- even after you've double checked them.
- Words are dropped out and added in.
- Most "mistakes" pass the spell checker.
- Stupid word replacements -- typos such as:
- "types", "typos" -- it actually happened when I published this page.
- "to", "too", "two"
- Words mysteriously appear -- some words you've never heard of or used.
- Sentences you type in -- are turned into gibberish.
- Many programs are affected:
- web browser
- word processors
- chat screens -- intended to start arguments & create ill feelings.
- Replies to your emails -- contain "your" quotations, but you didn't write them.
- Make you look stupid
- Annoy people with one another
- Make you doubt your sanity
- Make you think you are dyslexic.
- Lags from when you press enter -- to when it appears -- this began at TalkShoe April 2011.
- Stupidware seems to use some of the "keyboard logging" techniques used by hackers.
