Do you mean that someone has "hacked," for want of a better word, the current version?
I've been using it for quite a while without any problem at all. I'm also sure that others on this forum use it as well.
I didn't get informed of any updates because I turned the option off. It had become a repetitive nuisance, always asking me to check. Looks like I may have had a lucky break by doing this. I will make sure I leave well alone, and stick with the one I am using.
I had the same problem with rougue dialling. I got bt to bar premium rate calls, and installed the German Prog Dialer Control by coolspot. Like others it worked well until I was invited to download an updated version which is on trial for you to purchase a license later. I had terrible trouble once I did this, so I uninstalled and reinstalled the free prog. I then made sure I didnt fall for the update. From that date this prog has worked really well.Norton Firewall will also pick it up and gives you the option of blocking the attempt to dial out initiated by Coolspot. Hope this helps.
