Sunbelt Software har ved et tilfælde fundet en server med masser af informationer, der er hentet fra folks computere via spyware. Det er chat informationer, bank informationer, eBay informationer og meget meget mere, der er hentet ud af mange computere verden over. FBI er gået ind i sagen.
Researchers from a little-known security software company named Sunbelt Software have seemingly uncovered a criminal identity theft ring of massive proportions. According to one of their employees, Alex Eckelberry, during the course of one of their recent investigations into a particular Spyware application—rumored to be called CoolWebSearch—they've discovered that the personal information of those "infected" was being captured and uploaded to a server.
One can only speculate about why someone would do such a thing; the amount of data that could be gathered would almost certainly be daunting for even a few people to sift through and exploit. On the other hand, the researchers at Sunbelt have personally uncovered the personal information of two individuals who, combined, could be taken for well over US$350,000.
