Spyware

Spyware is a malware that attacks the computer with the intention of gathering personal information either from and individual or a business. Often times the information gathered by the spyware can then be given to a third party.

Viruses

Viruses are a form of malware that attacks the computer by replicating itself while changing the original computer program. Viruses can attack the data files and boot sectors of hard drives. viruses can cause system failure, they waste computer resources, corrupting data, and they can increasing maintenance costs for that computer. Most viruses are created to effect Microsoft software but that doesn’t mean it cannot infect other software as well.
