Yo, can you review YouTube? Since it is a product of Google, I would suppose it tracks what you watch and listen. Because of this, it gives you recommended videos that are relevant to your interests.

I finished reveiwing CDex. When running it with Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 open, I did not see it trying to connect to anything. Wireshark also did not see it trying to connect to anything. It may have had spyware features in an older version that have since been removed. However I did find something bad, the installer bundles it with a spyware web browser. The complete review is at that link I gave you.

Oh, cool. Too bad i memed you. Yes, i fucking joked about CDex being spyware. Good job falling for it. Also, not every single software in the world that gets data from you is spyware. It needs a malicious intent ya know? Like, selling it to advertisers. Just getting your data does not classify as spyware. All you're doing is create paranoia and fear to the people who lack any common sense about

how "ALL SOFTWARE IS SPYWARE!!1 DO NOT TRUST". Please. Just stop. Also what's the point of including software that's not spyware about a site that documents spyware?

Also what's the point of including software that's not spyware on a site that documents spyware?* Darn it, grammar error.

The point of the website is to catalog whether a program is spyware or not. So, if something is labeled as "Not Spyware", it's an example of an alterantive to programs that are spyware, or a program that has been checked for spyware features without any findings. We can agree to disagree on whether collecting user information is spyware. Spying isn't defined by who sees the information.

Hey dude, you're still active? I found a new spyware program. It's called CDex. It rips songs from your CD's. It's spyware because it scans your DVD drive id and sends it to CDex servers. It also sends info about what songs you're ripping.

I am still active. I wrote a "stub article" on CDex so that I can add content into it once I have more information. You can see the stub article here: https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/cdex.html . How do you know that CDex does this? Do you have logs from MITMproxy, a statement by the creator, or a link to the part of the source code that sends this information, or something else?

A friend of mine told me about it, and he gave me logs of the thing, but sadly they are lost since he hosted them on his site which is long dead and it was on a old skype convo on my old account that i can't access anymore.

Plus i did download them once, but the files are on a old harddrive that died years ago and got thrown away.

OK, I will take the time to run it through MITMproxy in some time and see what comes up, and write about it in the article. Thanks a lot for sharing this.
