Damn! Read that licence agreement before installing ANY ActiveX controls on your Windows system! The Register reports on greeting-card site FriendGreetings.com:
Users following the link are invited to install an ActiveX control in order to view their e-card. Two lengthy end user licence agreements (EULAs) are displayed stating that by running the application the user is giving permission for a similar email to be sent to all addresses found in a users's Outlook address book.
The concern is that in many cases, users will not bother to read the EULA and will allow numerous unwanted emails to be sent.
