What is Spyware? Spyware is software that gathers information about your Internet habits, browsing patterns, email passwords, usernames and even credit card information, in essence, 'spying' on the hapless user. This type of software usually gets installed without your knowledge and can transmit the collected data to a third party over the Internet secretly.

  • Infiltrate a users computer system without their consent.
  • Gather sensitive personal information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, birth dates, or system passwords.
  • Create back doors or remote entry points to allow hackers access to the system.
  • The destruction of critical data and/or corruption of system files.

Malware is a general term and is commonly used to include, Viruses, Worms, Spyware, Trojan Horses, and some forms of Adware. The actual intention of malware can vary but by definition it is any software that is destructive by nature. Because the term Malware is so broad it is hard to site one specific source for the most infections.
