Spyware and Keyloggers

More sophisticated Internet attacks can be carried out through the use of spyware and keyloggers. Spyware that is installed unknowingly on a victim’s computer can be used to track the victim’s Internet usage and steal personal information. Similarly, a keylogger that is installed on a computer can record anything that is typed on a computer, such as user names and passwords, and send that information to a perpetrator who installed the keylogger.
