Small-business spyware woes

Small-business spyware woes

Small businesses are having more trouble with spyware than larger enterprises, according to a new survey. About 40 percent of U.S. workers said they'd encountered spyware, with more of the intrusions coming at small and medium-size businesses, according to a news release from antivirus and Internet content security company Trend Micro, which conducted the survey.

The survey found that the top five consequences for U.S. companies of being victimized by spyware were lower computer performance, loss of productivity, loss of connection bandwidth, malicious downloads, and violation of privacy.
