Dummy files for neutering
These dummy files are drop-in
replacements for unwanted spyware modules that may be violating your privacy.
These allow you to execute a spyware-dependent program (e.g. Drug
Dealer Ware) to recover data if its modules have been deleted, without worrying about unwanted connections being made
behind your back. The dummy files can also be used without ad-supported
software, to prevent such spyware files from being installed in the future.
Ethics warning: These dummy files
are presented to give end-users an effective tool against hidden, undisclosed
spyware, spyware included with legitimately purchased software or hardware,
software installed without the user's consent, "Drug
Dealer Ware", and similar exploitive practices; as well as for proactive
protection against future spyware infections. These
files are not provided with the intention that you violate the license of
the software: it may be a violation of the license to use spyware-dependent
software after removal of spyware components; check with your software license
before installing. CEXX.ORG explicitly and without
limitation disclaims all liability for your use of these tools.
