    If there wasn't enough bad security news floating around for Windows users here's some more. A widely used online research company has been found be security researchers to be illegally installing their software without notifying the computer users.

    This software takes screenshots of all web pages you visit, including all secure sessions, and then sending it to comScore's servers. That means, if you knowingly or unknowingly have their software installed, any time you enter your credit card number, password, account number, etc.... comScore will have a picture of that page on their servers.
