    Doing my regular hunt for articles and news of interest - I found this... sounds more than a little worry-some...

    What say you to "crimeware"?

    At first glance, the fact that it supposedly morphs into any number of variants... but programmers selling the technology on the open market has got to be a relatively new concept... right?

    Crimeware is still spyware, custom made or not. It intrudes into people's privacy - and therefore should be detected.

    A nice heuristic engine should take care of the morphing into different variants - but lets wait for Happy Bytes' opinion on this.
