… well, not quite.
A week has passed since I email The Register about the AVG logfile spam problems, but, after lots of emails between myself and their Internet Editor, they’re now running the story.
I’m a little annoyed that they don’t acknowledge that I brought this to their attention, but ah well. All I really wanted to do was let the community know that this happening and see if together we can sort this.
I’m really pleased to see that an employee from AVG has stepped up within the comments of the article on El Reg and wants to work with us (webmasters/site owners) to see if we can improve the situation. I’ve already emailed them and await a response.
I’ll keep you posted.

It’s very cheeky for The Register to claim…

Yeah, I did email them about it. Cade said –
So, it’s fine, I think, although Drew (Editor in Chief) seemed completely unaware of it when I emailed him to start with.
I guess therefore that they were aware, just not fully aware of it’s overall impact.
