Hey Geeks,

I'm wondering what percentage of sales do spywares usually steal from sites in general..

It seems to me that CJ doesn't care about spyware..

I dont know if these stats are correct, but we tested for some common spywares on some sites, and the results were bad 7-14% of the traffic was infected.

I'm noticing CJ getting worse each month. I hope things pick up in the holiday season.

Ya, my CJ has been TERRIBLE this month.
Hopefully, its not because of spyware..but I suspect it is..

I guess it would get more worse until this spy-ware problem is sovled.

The 14% infection that we got I guess the real figures shoulde be even more as we were testing only for 3 spywares and there are many more of them........

Most of the home-network should be infected as most of the peer-to peer software like Kazza, i-Mesh, Morpheus etc have some sort of spyware ibundeled withthem.... and see the download stats for these softwares :(

But you just don't go promoting software (although spywarefree) like KaZaA Lite on your site, because it scares away the ad agencies and potential advertisers.
