THIS is scary!

"Regular" spyware is bad enough, this sounds just plain old scary - Quote "You hereby grant (Brilliant) the right to access and use the unused computing power and storage space on your computer/s and/or Internet access or bandwidth for the aggregation of content and use in distributed computing," end quote. So they basically can take over my PC and use the CPU cycles AND my hard drive for whatever they deem to be acceptable.

And doing this in cooperation with Doubleclick is even scarier: Quote "Bermeister said the company had been testing the technology along with ad giants DoubleClick as a way to serve ordinary Web ads more quickly" I don' ttrust those folks as far as I can throw them.

This has gotta stop.
