Spyware a national security threat?
(Spyware Confidencial - ZDNet)

“Computer Associates announced a 6.9 million dollar contract to protect Department of Defense (DOD) computers from spyware.”

“I've heard about military computers, many soldiers use them just like staff at a private company, or students on a campus might.

They get on P2P networks, download programs, and experience the same spyware threats as civilians. Of course, that the spyware companies would actually track and serve pop-up ads to any computer on a .mil domain is the height of stupidity.”
