UPDATE: Feb 13:
DoxDesk wrote:The parasite information database is gone for the moment. For more information about why I took this step see this site update.

When I started out doing this, as a back-end to the detector script, there were about half a dozen families of commercial malware to keep updated, and it was necessary to draw people's attention to the threats.

Since then of course the Spyware Problem has exploded beyond all possibility of one person tracking it all. It's now a more widespread and complicated problem than simple viruses ever were and there are now many companies employing many people to try and fight it. Of course there are any number of rogue marketing companies trying to make a quick buck out of anti-spyware too... but in any case, the issue hardly needs any more attention drawn to it at this point.

Secondly, despite saying “Please contact me if you believe I have unfairly classified your application!”, I am unable to deal with the queries this generates. Both due to the lack of time and the bomb-site nature of my mailbox—having had an e-mail address published across the web for many years means I get pretty much every spam, virus and bounce going. The best filtering in the world can't clear that up so it's likely a lot of my mail gets deleted or unread: I can't guarantee to respond in a timely fashion.

So, for now, the pages are down. However of course as they were Creative-Commons-licensed there is nothing to stop anyone else from taking them and maintaining them further. And the information itself is not gone forever; in one way or another it may help an upcoming project I hope will be very much of use to spyware victims.
