Excellent work! But, there appears to be some confusion as to just what was halted. Some news networks appear to be confusing this action with October 2nd's, possibly due to FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz when he said the following:
"And the tech support scam artists we are talking about today have taken scareware to a whole other level of virtual mayhem."
Err… no, no they haven't. There's no "ware" (malware) involved in tech support phone scams — it's pure social engineering. He really shouldn't have used the term scareware.
Tech support phone scams involve: people calling up from call centers; telling the receiver that "IP traffic" or some other such nonsense indicates their computer is infected with a virus; making a remote connection to the computer in order to "clean" it; and then selling them free or trial security software.
It's a social engineering scam — there's no scareware, there.
