Many people seem to use Box.net but each time I try to connect to this site my Zone Alarm Anti-Spyware blocks the connection with a report that this is a spyware site.
I tried to find out more and found this statement by Checkpoint Technologies defending the claim by stating that they have evidence of over 50 incidents of spyware infecting computers from this site.
I also found this other post with further reports of spyware problems:
I do know that I can over-ride Zone Alarm's antispyware and allow the connection but I have no intention of visiting sites that infect computers with spyware.
I have my own webspace so I don't need free hosting sites but many of our members use Box.net for us to listen to their files. If the accusation against Box.net can be subtantiated then I feel our members should be warned. Apart from this I am missing the opportunity to listen to the efforts of members who use this site.
Does anyone know any more about this or has anyone had any such problems with this site?
