Spyware is absolutely everywhere
By INQUIRER staff
AN AVERAGE of 28 spyware programs run on each computer and more than 30 per cent of PCís have a Trojan Horse to call their own.
A report from EarthLink and Webroot Software bases its findings on scans of more than a million internet connected computers.
Most of the 29 million spyware programs that were found were harmless "adware" programs but there were more than 300,000 instances of programs capable of stealing personal information or providing unauthorized access to computers.
Of course the information would be even more credible if EarthLink didnít sell a program called Spyware Blocker as part of its TotalAccess package of software programs and tools.
