Spyware on the majority of consumer PCs

Webroot Software has just published its State of Spyware report for the second quarter of 2006. The report reveals some interesting findings from the company's review of consumer and enterprise PCs....What this points out is the critical need for both business and consumers to get their house in order when it comes to managing the growing threat caused by spyware.

Not to do so can result in a variety of problems, ranging from relatively minor problems like a slower computer to major security breaches and financial losses. Webroot's report discusses the fact that more than 40 companies experienced security breaches during the second quarter. The report also discusses the thankfully rare experience of an individual who had $90,000 withdrawn from his bank account after an attack from a Trojan horse.
