What is Spyware?
These are software programs that install silently in the background without your knowledge. These programs then monitor everything you do on the system, from the keys you press on your keyboard to the sites you visit, the applications you open and work with and so on. The gathered data is usually sent back to a central server which is then processed and used in marketing products or even in hacking into the user’s account depending on the program author.
