Default State of Spyware in 2006

I was reading an article in a PC Magazine I buy and there is an article about a report published by Webroot titled "State of Spyware Q2 2006".

I am just downloading the full report from Webroot:

http://www.webroot.com/land/sosreport-2006-q1.php

Its an interesting read.

But here are some facts from the article:

Percentage of consumer pcs infected with trojans is 31% compared to just 12% in 2004.

Percentage of consumer pcs infected with spyware is 89% compared with just 72% in 2005.

Percentage of consumer pcs infected with adware is just 6% compared with 21% in 2004. So Adware is down.

Check the full report out, I havnt read it yet but I will glance over it.

Techpro, perhaps you can paste the content here?

For those who dont like signing up to things which they are only going to view once. Try out http://www.10minutemail.com . It gives you a temporary email for ten minutes which is enough time to signup and get the validation email. Then in ten minutes the account gets deleted.
