Hand auf's Herz: Wer liest jede Lizenzvereinbarung durch?

> First Worm with a EULA?
> There is a new virtual postcard from Friend Greetings, owned by
> Permissioned Media that prompts you to install their software to
> view the card. You are then presented with a EULA granting them
> permission to e-mail all the Contacts in your Outlook Address Book.
> Those people are presented with an e-mail from you telling them
> they have a greeting card to pick up. So, this thing spreads like a
> worm, but includes a EULA that 95% of users won't take the time to
> read. Symantec isn't detecting this as a virus, but does have
> information about it on their site. In addition to the worm-like
> way it spreads, it also installs spyware designed to deliver ads to
> your computer. You also give them permission to install further
> software any time they want. In my opinion this is completely
> nasty, but it's all clearly in the EULA that you must agree to
> before it installs the software.
