Spyware Infects 30% Of European Business

from the ouch dept

Spyware is becoming more and more invasive these days, and a new study in Europe says that 30% of European businesses have been infected by some form of spyware. Of course, this study is being done by Websense – the web monitoring firm that puts out lots of studies that end with something along the lines of “to prevent this, you could buy Websense…”, so the results need to be taken with a few grains of salt. Either way, though, I imagine that it won’t be long before anti-spyware products start showing up from the big security companies, right next to their firewall and anti-spam products.
