We may cure cancer before we cure spyware. That’s a terrible future fighting high-tech criminals, but that’s the kind of long hard fight with a short stick I see ahead of us.
That said, PC Magazine offers Nine Ways to Wipeout Spyware new on their Web site today. Even better, they offer a list of other products tested earlier, including warnings about products that do little or nothing except cost you money.
I don’t know the article author, Neil J. Rubenking, but he did a good job gathering and testing all the nine products in the test. Those types of reviews are always a pain and take more time than you expect, at least when I do them. Kudos to Neil and PC Magazine.
Well you have to hand it to the russian spyware gangs. The new world of cyber extortion by them is developing sooner than we expect.
