Spyware Researchers Discover ID Theft Ring


Spyware Researchers Discover ID Theft Ring This eWeek.com story covers the already known problems with CoolWebSearch application, but offers comments expressing surprise at how extensive the spyware problem is on users PC's. When issues are so clearly identified by security researchers, it is inexcusable that PC makers and operating systems don't routinely block this threat and protect systems.

It's incredible that all PC manufacturers are not being sued constantly by victims of identity theft as they should be able to protect consumers from known threats, such as CoolWebSearch and similar types of spyware and malware. This is exactly why ecommerce numbers have dropped, instead of increasing for the first time in years. Buyers are becoming wary of online threats.

As they should.
