Panda Software presents SpyXposer, the new, free online tool to combat spyware

Panda Software releases a new on-demand, online scanning tool, SpyXposer, designed for users that want to carry out a full scan of their computer for spyware, the biggest security threat over the last few months. It can be used completely free and as often as needed and incorporates all Panda Software’s expertise in the detecting spyware, as it is updated every day.

Spyware is, without a doubt, one of the biggest threats over the last few months. Data compiled by Panda ActiveScan in the second quarter of this year shows that over 50 percent of the threats reported in this period were adware and spyware. The danger of this threat is evident, as in addition to the damaging effects it can have on the performance of the computer; this malware can also steal all types of confidential information (personal details, browsing activity, bank details) in order to sell it to third-parties.

For this reason, Panda Software releases this tool, designed to give users easy access to spyware detection tools and increase awareness of the danger of this threat. The aim of this tool is to minimize the impact of this type of malware on users’ computers, which generates losses running into the millions in companies worldwide. The proven experience of Panda Software in the fight against spyware has resulted in its products earning maximum efficiency in this aspect, as backed by PC Magazine who claimed it “was more successful in cleaning and blocking spyware than any of the other suites were.” For this reason, the company has recently joined the Anti-Spyware Coalition (ASC), whose aim is to combat this type of malware.

SpyXposer is a tool for detecting spyware available on Panda Software’s website, (com/spyxposer_principal.htm>), which can be used totally free, and as often as you need it. In order to do this, all you need is an Internet connection and with a simple click you can carry out a scan whenever you want. It rapidly and effective detects this type of malware, so users can use it as a “second opinion’ to their security solution, and it is updated at least once a day.

“PandaLabs is fully aware of the importance of this threat and therefore, consider the SpyXposer initiative essential,” explains Luis Corrons, director of PandaLabs. “Thanks to both SpyXposer and Panda ActiveScan, which detects all types of malware, users can get a second opinion from a leading company in IT security. However, it is always recommendable for users to ensure they have permanent anti-malware protection installed on their computers, and that they are completely up-to-date.”
