Spyware will infect up to 50% of companies within the next two years according to new research from Gartner, which believes education combined with a strong technical defence is the best way to combat financially motivated cyber crime.

Samir Karouni, sales engineer with Trend Micro Middle East and Africa backed up this idea saying: "PC users need to understand what the impact of spyware and adware is on their particular computing environment.

"Users also need to understand how their online behaviour compound their risk of spyware, so they can seek to modify those behaviours. The best way to combat it is not to get infected in the first place."
