Anybody know what this "spsecure" program is that's installed on my mac?

Location /usr/local/sps/spsecure

Is it a legitimate program, or is it spyware?

Would this question be better asked at serverfault?

Well... I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you that it is not installed by default, as it is not on my machine (running OS 10.5).

Based on that and the file name... my guess would be spyware though.

It is a malicious keylogger from Spectorsoft called eBlaster. Someone is tracking your passwords, email, web surfing etc.
