Original Press Release:

Say Goodbye to Internet Pop-Up Ads with Aladdin Systems' Internet Cleanup 3.0 for Windows

Protect Internet Privacy -- Erase Data Trails and Permanently Remove Tracking Devices

Watsonville, CA- December 18, 2002 Aladdin Systems, Inc., an Aladdin Systems Holdings, Inc. company (OTC BB: ALHI), today announced the release of a new and enhanced version of Internet Cleanup(tm), a product recently acquired from Kroll Ontrack (KROL). Internet Cleanup 3.0 adds privacy protection and other block and remove features: automatically block all pop-up Ads, Web bugs, and banner Ads and remove Spyware, tracking devices, unwanted cookies, Active X controls and more.

"Privacy is an issue that gets more important every day," said Pauline Shumake, product manager. "Users want to know that what they do and where they go on the Internet is private and that their activities won't be recorded in marketing databases that can be traced back to them. Internet Cleanup resolves the privacy concern by removing tracking devices and Internet clutter that can be traced."

Internet Cleanup's Browser Guard is tightly integrated with Internet Explorer allowing users to block Ads, Web bugs and cookies, plus trace their origins. Internet Cleanup schedules automatic cleanups at start-up or other scheduled times. It includes more recently accessed lists for all favorite commonly used applications, including Word, Windows Media Player and IE. It also helps manage email In boxes with auto-scheduled cleanups. Users can protect cookies for favorite sites and get rid of the ones they don't want, but also use the restore feature if they accidentally deleted the wrong cookie.

"With Internet Cleanup, users don't have to view annoying flashing Ads and can have control of cookies so that only wanted cookies are accepted, all others are blocked," continued Shumake. "Privacy is protected through the deletion of Instant Message and chat logs, and you can instantly view and trace Web bugs and other threats to privacy while online."
