Spyware is software that enables a hacker to obtain information about another user’s computer activities by transmitting data covertly from their hard drive. Spyware can come from many sources and you may not even realize your computer is infected. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in the background to someone else. Spyware can also gather information about e-mail addresses and even passwords and credit card numbers.

Malware is software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems. Common malware includes viruses and trojan horses. A new common piece of malware called ransomware hijacks your system by locking you out of all of your important files then demanding money in order to restore them.

If you think your computer has already been infected, bring it to our South Beckham location and we can diagnose it.
