The number of companies reporting spyware infestation has increased by just under 50 percent over the past 12 months, according to a survey released by Internet security specialists Websense.

According to the annual Websense [email protected] survey, which was published on Tuesday, 17 percent of companies with more than 100 employees have spyware such as a keylogger on their network.

"This is almost 50 percent growth in the instances of keyloggers that organisations are reporting back," Joel Camissar, country manager for Websense told ZDNet Australia. "Despite the organisations having a best of breed anti-virus, anti spyware and firewall, we are still detecting a huge amount of backchannel spyware communication".
