?The security firms ICSA Labs, McAfee, Symantec, Thompson Cyber Security Labs and Trend Micro have joinned forces to tackle spyware. They are collaborating on a common naming system for spyware and will co-produce tools to remove the malicious software.

The initiative hopes to remove some of the current confusion caused by anti-spyware firms managing their own labelling and removal methods.

The group said collaboration was needed as the amount of spyware in circulation was rising by 50-100% per year.
