Default Spyware evolving faster than viruses

Sometimes I wonder why people do things and what must be going through their minds when they do them. I often wonder how many people in this world really don't have a conscience.

It would be difficult to believe that people behind viruses and spyware are rational and it would be easy to wonder if they have a conscience.

Spyware is now evolving faster than viruses. Some software resets itself on an hourly basis to help avoid detection.

A leading security firm says there has been a very large increase in spyware over the last 12 months with the majority of it having the purpose of harvesting financial data for use by third parties.

VoIP applications could be the next target according to some experts.
