What are your thoughts about spyware and adware


Unit 3 Discussion: Spyware and Adware

Spyware is software that is installed on someone’s   computer, without their consent, to intercept or control the user’s   interactions. Adware can be “spyware in disguise.” Adware is software that   only displays ads and the ads are often used in shareware registration. But,   the registered software can contain spyware.

What are your thoughts about spyware and adware? Are   there any possible benefits to spyware and adware? Are there any negatives?   Do you think that use of spyware is unethical? Should individual computer   users be savvy enough to protect themselves?

What can be done to protect your computer(s) from   spyware and adware? What can be done to protect the computers at your place   of work? Find one or more websites that discuss spyware and/or adware. Your   website may or may not support your position about spyware and adware.

Summarize what you learned, addressing the questions   and issues above. Did the websites support your position on the use of   spyware and adware?  How or how not?

Be sure to fully cite your source(s) using APA format,   including the URLs, so that your classmates may also visit the site.
