Financial services technology executives are worrying less about computer viruses and worms and more about other types of malware.[@@]

Researchers at Ernst & Young L.L.P., New York, have published data supporting that conclusion in a report on an informal survey of 107 executives from insurance companies around the world.

Although 38% of the participants say controlling worms and viruses has been 1 of their 3 “information security drivers” in the past 12 months, only 20% think worms and viruses will be a top-3 driver over the next 12 months.

In the past year, only 7% of the participants have found spyware and related programs to be top-3 information security drivers, but 15% expect spyware to take up much of their time during the next year.
