[xubuntu-users] How wide spread is Linux spyware?

Forgive me, but I find this kind of vague reporting to be less than
useful.  There is no mention of what programs, apps, etc. are involed
and how to change the settings to avoid them

Even given that many of us are in the IT industry, Ubuntu is becoming
more and more widespread.  Giving the audience enough technical
information to address the problem is much better than vague,
non-specific FUD.  (I always thought that was the M$ approach....)

So which software is doing this?
