Hey

From Bullguard

Spyware writers are generating $2bn of revenue annually after capturing 25 percent of the online advertising market, CNET reports.

According to a report issued by security software maker Webroot, 88 percent of consumer machines harbored some form of unwanted program during the first quarter of 2005.

Among businesses, Webroot found similarly overwhelming results, with spyware on 87 percent of all the corporate PCs it studied.

In addition to remaining a major threat to personal and business security, Webroot said, spyware applications--specifically the types that generate pop-up advertisements, hijack home pages, redirect Web searches and use so-called DNS poisoning to steal Web traffic--generate an estimated $2 billion in revenue annually.

Based on statistics published by the Internet Advertising Bureau, spyware could represent almost 25 percent of the entire online advertising industry.
