Viruses, Spyware, Adware and Worms
As if you didn't have enough to worry about with Spam and Viruses! Spyware is now taking over all other malicious threats as the number one threat to personal computer users. Below you can find more about this problem in more detail and list some of the services we provide to help you win the battle. Please see the News and Glossary sections for more information.
The typical user doesn't even know that they have been infected. I recently removed Trojan Horses from 3 of my clients that were feeding pornography to the Internet. These were businesses in the community whose livelihood depends on honesty, trust and impeccable reputations.
As if that wasn't bad enough, these machines contained various other Spyware, Adware, Worms, etc that were watching what the users were doing, reporting on their activities, popping up windows of ads, significantly slowing down the PC's and much more. In each case, the clients contacted me because of slow PC performance and annoying Pop-ups, they had no knowledge that there were more sinister processes going on.
One of the Hot Topics in the news today is Identity Theft. You see it in clever commercials by Credit Card companies and read about it in the newspapers. Spyware and Adware are designed with identity theft as their base. "According to the Federal Trade Commission in a survey last year, 27 million Americans have been victims of identity theft in the last five years, including 10 million in the last year alone."
