Best Windows Malware Ever!

Besides not being a cygwin util (as others have mentioned), whenever
I see someone posting an unsolicited, out-of-any-context
advertisement (spam) like this, my first thought is that someone is
trying to induce me to install their new "trojan" (or keylogger,
bot-sw, etc).

Of course if they post the source (which they never do), it might
be different...but it is quite odd to post a non-cygwin related
util, out of the blue, to a cygwin mailing list.

Do people still fall for these traps?

There's a reason why the software is "free"...(and closed source).
