What are viruses?
Viruses are small files that attach to emails or downloads and infect your computer which is why you need virus protection. They can be as harmless as displaying pictures on your monitor or they can go through your address book and send everyone within your address book the same virus. More dangerous versions can completely crash your computer, steal your information, take over your machine and send spam from your computer.
What are hackers?
Hackers are the underbelly of the internet. They are people who randomly scan the internet to find “openings” so they can go in and snoop around. Once into your machine, they have as much access to it as you do. That means your online banking, personal data and family data. Hacker security is your safety net when surfing.

Spyware monitors your every move in the Internet to use this information without your permission and can have serious consequences for you. They are computer applications that collect information about your browsing activity, preferences and interests. The data collected is sent to the creator of the application or third-parties, either directly or after being stored on the computer. It can be installed on computers in many different ways, including Trojan which install them without the users permission; when visiting web pages with certain ActiveX controls or code that exploits certain vulnerabilities; shareware or freeware applications downloaded from the Internet, etc. It can be installed with the user consent and awareness, but sometimes it is not. The same happens with the knowledge or lack of knowledge regarding data collected and the way it is used.
Adware is a term used to refer to Advertising Software or programs that display advertisements using any means available such as pop-up windows, banners, changes to the browser home page or search page, etc.
How does spyware and adware work
Spyware, adware and dialers use different channels for entering your computer:
A Trojan can download and install from the Internet. On accessing a web page you may be asked permission to install something. Your browser settings may be set to load these automatically. Hidden during the installation of seemingly innocuous programs downloaded from the Internet with shareware or freeware licenses.
Spyware is developed by companies looking for financial gain through unethical means.
Banners and pop-up windows or changes to your home page. Changing default search options, or altering the results of searches. Installing other companies’ programs, which can also be other spy programs or promotions of other applications. Their behaviour, once installed, can be categorised as follows:
Hijackers: changing user information, such as the browser home and search pages, interfering with search results, etc.
Trackware: programs that carry out inventories of the applications installed, searches of users’ movements on the Internet, etc. To do this they save all searches made with the search engine that they install as the home page or insert a (keylogger), on the computer to track all keystrokes. These can be started using a BHO (Browser Helper Object) or browser plugins. They are usually loaded when a link on a malicious web page is clicked on, and they are executed when the browser is opened. They may be visible as browser toolbars, or remain hidden while they perform a series of operations without the user knowing. Other forms of activation like those used by viruses and Trojans.
Tips to stay protected against spyware, adware and malware:
Increase your browser security level to prevent the automatic execution of scripts and ActiveX controls.
Be especially careful with programs you download from the Internet: many free programs, especially those from P2P applications, could contain spyware or adware. These programs will affect the performance and memory of your computer, will prevent it from operating properly and can even cause the browser or operating system to lock.
Ensure applications installed on your computer are kept up-to-date, by installing windows and other application security patches. This will prevent spyware from exploiting vulnerabilities to install itself on your PC.
