Who’s Winning the Race to Control Spyware?

by on January 6, 2005

And they’re off! It’s a race between technology and law to see who can control spyware.

In Lane 5, the U.S. Congress is again considering anti-spyware legislation.

In Lane 6, Microsoft has just introduced an anti-spyware program that rivals Ad-Aware and SpyBot, according to one writer’s first impression.

Who’s in Lanes 1-4? Oh, it’s the anti-spyware tools that are already out there: Ad-Aware, SpyBot Search & Destroy, PestPatrol, and all the others.

Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen! If you backed CAN-SPAM, here’s a chance to make your money back – or double your losses.
