Spyware and Adware useragents??

    Hi
    SEMrush
    I just wondering if any of you know some Spyware and/or Adware useragents like FunWebProducts and Hotbar...

    I'm making a small php script that analyzes the user agents of visitors, and displays a small warning if it detects any of those strings, and it would have been nice to add more than just those two.. :)

    Thanks.

    FunWebProducts technically isn't spyware, although it's annoying.

    It's an idiotic icon system... and if you dig around enough, you will actually find it's a division of AskJeeves.

    Funwebproducts can be a pain to take off someones computer too! They like to download more parts if you don't disconnect first.

    I know it's (technically) not spyware, but it's certainly really annoying Adware.. :)


    Anyone who knows of any other Spyware/Adware that can be identified by their useragents??

    I'd be careful about "depending" too much on User Agents, since that is, of course, easily spoofed. Heck, there's is probably some Spyware that says it is Googlebot! ;-)
