unless they are able to impersonate you with their own set of fake IDs with your name on it, its a little difficult to steal your Adsense account because your name and even your email cannot be changed.

You are right. But if a software like this is sniffing information about your sites, is still a bad thing.

you can only wonder why they came up with these programs and just give it away for free... what's their purpose for doing so... do they have a sinister agenda...

Don't take this as a lead that their software is spyware, because most of the software companies out there create free programs to promote their services.

That doesn't mean that they spy on you.

I think a test with a sniffer would give us the best answer here :)

what is this about?

of course people developing extensions, modules and themes like to have visits on their websites.

I trust freeware tools from other developers if thy are listed at mozilla's homepage...I don't think that open source programmers think so much about fraude and other criminal things (maybe I'm wrong???)

Open source and freeware is a different thing.

The tool that we are talking about is not open source, so it could actually have some spyware.

I'm talking about the Adsense notifier:

(find the license information at the end of the page)

In one of the "How much money do you make?" threads I've seen lately, someone lamented that folks weren't telling.

Finally, someone posted that those folks who are making big dollars with Adsense, YPN, and the others don't respond to those posts for fear of theft. They further explained that rippers seek out sites where the owner foolishly boasted of earnings. Makes sense, copy what works.

Seems like this tool or a program derived from it could make this process even easier.

Nikolas
Sun 14 May 2006, 11:18 pm GMT +0200
That is a very good reason for not using this program YMC.

I am not making big money (at least not yet) but anyway I don't think it is good to share  information like this with anyone.

even if you cant steal the actual account, the information you can get from those high earners' account can be very useful.

are we talking about the FF extension or the program?

well, not the FF extension because they wouldnt have endorsed it if it was spyware. its about the other freeware programs...

Hey guys, I am the creator of the Firefox extension Adsense Notifier. Thanks for all the kind words, glad that many of you find the extension so useful.

In regards to the security of your Adsense username and password, one should always take care to ensure that any of the programs and extensions that they install on their computer are trustworthy. Any program that you install on your PC _could_ have the capability to steal your passwords.

To that, the source code for Adsense Notifier is completely open source (released under the GPL) and is actually included within the .XPI install file. To view the source yourself simply rename the .XPI to .ZIP and unzip, then under the 'chrome' directory, rename the .JAR to .ZIP and unzip. This contains the actual code that runs the notifier.

I appreciate all of your feedback, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments!

Thanks

BTW, Be sure to download programs from their offical locations only.  Adsense Notfiier is available from the following locations:

@mincus,

there is one bad point with you great extension: you look much more often into the lower right corner of you computer screen to note how much money you have already earned :D

Sure did, until I logged into Adsense to grab some more advertising code, and after Meth0d told me he got banned from Adsense after that happened to his account. :( I was ready to switch to Yahoo! and get rid of it then if I were to be banned.

That's more of a Google-centric topic. He was banned because he made more than $100 in a hour. I was willing to get rid of Google Adsense (and thus losing Google Search for my entire site) and switch to Yahoo's Advertising system. Give a man a break, Google! :P

lol a website making $100 an hour should have ~250.000 - 500.000 visits a day (or it must be some buy financial site)
