Spyware coalition on verge of breakthrough report

StopBadware.org, that coalition of smarties aiming to, uh, stop badware in its tracks, is about to release its first report. This report is rumored to contain a doosie – that P2P file sharing software like Kazaa may contain spyware!

The group will recommend..

“that users stay away from Kazaa and three other programs that can be combined with Trojans and bots for use in data theft attacks.”

Damn, am I glad those guys are around. Who would of thought?

***UPDATE***

For those interested, the cadre of intellectuals has three other programs on their list as well. That is four whole programs that distribute spyware!

Would some safety prone Windows user please tell me how many programs are in a Webroot DAT file?
