Google's Snooping a Good Thing?

I'm not a fan of huge companies looking over my shoulder, and Google is a huge offender. But its latest move really ain't so bad. It just started alerting users when it thinks their computers have become compromised. Okay, this means Google is probing our systems. I'm not entirely comfortable with that, but there's nothing totally wrong with an extra layer of protection.

In theory, I like this idea, but want to make sure the details are all sorted out.

Any advice for the Google-meisters? I'll pass it along if you write to [email protected]
