It should be ‘awesome spectacular plugin rages through Facebook!’

Dru Mundorff, the creator of LilyJade, a shady Facebook app, defending his idea in the comments of Russell Brandom’s BuzzFeed article talking about how shady it is. The cross-platform browser plugin, which tricks users into installing it, replaces all the ads on other sites with his. Classy. He’s made a quarter-million bucks off the thing in just two weeks, has already drawn a comment from Wikipedia, a cease-and-desist from Facebook, is for sale on hacker forums, and and as Brandom points out, what he’s doing is gray-area but legal, since users are installing it themselves. Great. Be careful what you click, guys. This is a new generation of malware. And it works on nearly everything.
