CDT Warns About Spyware Menace

Posted on November 20, 2003

The Center For Democracy and Technology, a DC-based non-profit group, has filed a report (Ghosts in Our Machines: Background and Policy Proposals on the Spyware Problem) warning computer users about the risks with spyware. The CDT report included adware in its report and blamed the spyware and adware companies for misleading consumers, slowing down computers and for having software that was difficult to uninstall. The report also discusses the theft of information by keystroke loggers and other illegal software utilities.
