We want to express our love to visitors to wheel.troxo.com, so we decided to organize a fun contest to give away a hundred IISGuard licenses. Ten quickest emails to info [at] troxo.com with the subject "Give me my 10 servers IISGuard license" take them away.
Update – July 09, 2007: we have already given away 10×10 licenses. Due to a high interest in this campaign, we are extending it and we will give away five more IISGuard licenses for ten servers.
Update – July 12, 2007: until the end of 10th of July we gave away five more licenses for ten installations of IISGuard. The campaign is now over, but we have given away a few more licenses to those who had applied before we put out this update.
We’ll have more surprises down the road for those who fail to reach the top 10 so don’t despair.

Around 450,000 were capable of launching drive-by-downloads sites, sites that install malicious code, such as spyware without a user’s knowledge.
A further 700,000 pages were thought to contain code that could compromise your computer.
The rise in web-based malware has been aided by the increasing role the internet plays in everyday life, the report says. With the number of sites hosting malicious code on the up, combating the issues is something you do not skip today. (more…)
