Spyware threat to computer systems

Spyware consists of "executables" that infect computers used to visit malicious websites or reply to mass e-mailings

Spyware consists of "executables" that infect computers used to visit malicious websites or reply to mass e-mailings. Most anti-virus and anti-spyware tools rely on the mass propagation of viruses and spyware to create signatures of the bad software, so that it can be found and removed from infected machines. But the attacks in Israel used custom-developed malicious software that was aimed at specific targets using specific delivery methods. Most anti-virus and anti-spyware tools would be unlikely to find these executables.
