Time to pull the plug on "Spyware"

Security

Another one for the security soapbox: spyware. The problem is, that some (if not much) adware/spyware has become malicious: impossible to remove without reinstalling the entire system, as this column describes. The time has come to support (already proposed) anti-spyware legislation, that will define limits on what spyware is allowed to do, and demand action from the anti-virus vendors to add, at a minimum, malicious spyware to the list of viruses scanned & cleaned by their software.
