So What is Spyware?
Spyware is ANY SOFTWARE which employs a user's Internet connection in the background (the so-called "backchannel") without their knowledge or explicit permission.

Silent background use of an Internet "backchannel" connection MUST BE PRECEDED by a complete and truthful disclosure of proposed backchannel usage, followed by the receipt of explicit, informed, consent for such use.

ANY SOFTWARE communicating across the Internet absent these elements is guilty of information theft and is properly and rightfully termed: Spyware.

Les spywares Pop ups de plus en plus envahissants !

Au même titre que les virus et le vers, les spywares gâchent la vie de plus en plus d'utilisateurs d'ordinateurs. Ces mini-logiciels également appelés espions s'incrustent, parfois même sans l'autorisation de l'utilisateur dans les systèmes. Les spywares qui peuvent, par exemple, être introduits à travers l'installation d'un logiciel téléchargé par un internaute, se chargent de "surveiller" les actions d'un utilisateur (pages internet visitées, logiciels utilisés ...) afin de remplir des bases de données, qui pourraient ensuite servir le SPAM (la publicité via email non sollicitée).

Les spywares peuvent également redéfinir la page de démarrage de votre navigateur web, ils dégradent les performances et la stabilité des systèmes.

Prenez soins de vos machines!
