Secret Service Checking Out Hidden Spyware On University Computers

from the sneaky-criminals dept

Apparently, the secret service is running an investigation at four different universities where spyware was found on computer lab machines. They believe that someone went into the computer lab, and installed the software – in order to then (I assume) track everything anyone did on those machines in order to get login and credit card info. There’s no indication as to how the secret service figured out what was going on, however. This would seem like a good reminder that perhaps shouldn’t do very much confidential stuff on public terminals.
