Like spam, spyware is a lingering problem in the technology world. While spyware is not a virus, and usually doesn’t try to sell you things, it’s still a threat to every business for one reason: it tries to violate your privacy.
Spyware programs are written to quietly gather information – your information. Some programs will just sniff through a single computer; those are relatively harmless. Others will zero in on major servers and siphon off anything they can find.
There have been reports of major companies who lost control of their proprietary software when a spyware app got into their servers. It copied everything there and sent it all to the spyware program’s creator. Now the company can never get their software back under control. Their patents are gone.
Don’t rely on your antivirus. They aren’t designed to combat spyware; many programs will slip by unnoticed.
To properly respond to spyware invasion, you’ll need three things:
Timing is critical with spyware – some programs can multiply like viruses. And they’ll grind your network to a halt if left unchecked.
