Transcript of Internet Security
Spyware is software that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without their knowledge and that may send such information to another entity without the consumer's consent, or that asserts control over a computer without the consumer's knowledge.
One type of spyware is known as ‘keylogger’ which literally records all keyboard activity. It maybe installed by the owner of a shared, corporate, or public computers intentionally in order to monitor users.
Spyware can collect almost any type of data, including personal information like Internet surfing habits, user logins, and bank or credit account information.
It can also interfere with user control of a computer by installing additional software or redirecting Web browsers. Some spyware can change computer settings, which can result in slow Internet connection speeds, un-authorized changes in browser settings, or changes to software settings. Sometimes, spyware is included along with genuine software, and may come from a malicious website.
Phishing is the act of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites; auction sites, banks, online payment processors or IT administrators, which are commonly used to lure unsuspecting public.
Phishing emails may contain links to websites that are infected with malware. Phishing is typically carried out by email spoofing or instant messaging, and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one.
Phishing is an example of social engineering techniques used to deceive users, and exploits the poor usability of current web security technologies.
