     Spyware applications are hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from
    the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in
                                            the background to someone else.

                                                     Is "Spyware" Watching You?
                                                               By Jim Edwards



    Is "Spyware" Watching You? by Jim Edwards


Imagine my surprise when I received a phone call from a
friend who told me he'd been the victim of a "spyware"
attack that left him shaking at his loss of privacy.

I listened to his horror story with a sympathetic ear, but
I felt secure since I carry anti-virus software and a
firewall (both by Norton).

At his suggestion - and to my surprise - I ran a program
called "Spy Sweeper" and found a veritable minefield of
dangerous and harmful programs lurking on my computer.

"Spyware" is software that gets onto your computer and
literally "spies" on your activities.

The spying can range from relatively harmless use of
cookies tracking you across multiple websites... to
extremely dangerous "keystroke loggers" which record
passwords, credit cards, and other personal data. That data
then gets relayed to the person who put the software on
your computer.

Three primary types of spyware exist to complicate your
online life, including:

1. "cookies"
2. "adware"
3. malicious programs like "keystroke loggers"

Cookies represent mostly a danger of lost privacy.

In theory, someone could use a "cookie" to track you across
multiple sites, combine that data with several databases,
and figure out a lot more information about you than would
make you comfortable.

"Adware" tracks more than just your movement across sites,
it spies on your installed software and computer habits to
then serve up advertising, modify websites before you see
them, and generally do things without your knowledge with
the intention of trying to get you to buy things.

"Keystroke loggers" and other malicious programs exist for
one purpose: to cause personal mayhem and financial damage.

Spyware gets on your computer in one of several different
ways.

First, it rides along with software you download from the
'Net and install on your system.

Second, they come as email attachments (much like viruses)
and automatically install themselves on your computer when
you open the email message.

Third, hackers find an open port on your computer and use
the "back door" to install basically anything they want.

And fourth, the more malicious types, like keystroke
loggers, can even get installed by someone with direct
physical access to your computer such as an employer,
suspicious spouse, business competitor, or someone who
wants to know exactly what you're doing.

Now, suppose you carry an up-to-date anti-virus program and
a firewall - shouldn't that represent potent protection?

In a word: NO!

I can personally attest that even the most up-to-date anti-
virus programs and firewalls will not (repeat, WILL NOT)
catch all the spyware that can infest your computer.

You need a program that specifically scans your system for
the tens-of-thousands of existing spyware programs along
with the new ones appearing daily.

program I used to discover the spyware on my computer.

One thing I noticed, however, is that this program is a
memory hog, so once I scanned, I turned it off and then
use it 2-3 times a week... not the best strategy, but
I want to give you the "whole" picture.

I also got the following recommendations from numerous
subscribers about 2 programs to specifically help identify
and remove spyware from your system (PC):

1. "Ad Aware" from lavasoft.de
2. "Spybot Search & Destroy" from safer-networking.org

The overwhelmingly recommended firewall suggested by readers
was Zone Alarm Pro from Zone Labs
=> http://www.ebookfire.com/zonealarm.html

The bottom line seems pretty simple (but lengthy) if you
want to protect yourself against this growing threat.

~ Keep your anti-virus program current
~ Install a firewall
~ Carefully screen software before installing it
~ Scan for specifically for spyware weekly
~ Stay current on this growing threat.

If you use the internet, There is over 90% chance your computer is infected with spyware - Source
CNN.

Just think about it. You probably have a t least one, if not more computers in your home. Most
computers today have internet access. And if you receive email from others and surf to a couple of
sites can you be almost completely sure you have some kind of spyware installed in your computer.

How dangerous are spyware?

Let me give you a short list of things spyware can do,

Spyware can run completely hidden on your computer
It can slow down your computer a lot
It can spy on you and send everything you type to someone else
It can record everything you do, allowing someone to see it later
It can spy on you and send account information, passwords, credit card numbers and similar to a third
party.
It can steal files, pictures, videos and more from your computer

Some spyware will do just a few things and others everything from the list above, and more.

You must keep your computer clean from spyware or risk loosing personal information, financial
information or even your private photos or family videos.

Run a spyware scanner regularly to clean out any spyware that may have sneaked their way into your
computer. Do note that antivirus software (even the most expensive ones) have problems to keep
spyware out. So get a good anti spyware software and use it!

No matter what the spyware's purpose really is, the bottom line is that at the very least it will cause you
countless hours of problem solving and slow downs on your computer.

Scan your PC now to make sure it is clean. If you find anything, avoid using any credit cards or visit
your bank until the PC is cleaned with a top anti spyware software.
