Computer espionage is usually done by malicious hackers using a type of malware that seeks to gather information about a person or organization without their knowledge and to send that information to hack another entity without the consent of the consumer. Besides, spyware asserts control over a device without the knowledge of the consumer by sending confidential information to another entity with the consent of the consumer through cookies. Spyware is mostly classified into four types which are Adware, System Monitors, Tracking Cookies, and Trojan. Examples of other notorious types, including digital rights management capabilities such as "phone home," keyloggers, rootkits, and web beacons.
Spyware is mostly used to steal information, store Internet users' movements on the Web, and to serve pop-up ads to Internet users. Whenever spyware is used for malicious purposes, its presence is usually hidden from the user and can be difficult to detect. Some spyware, such as keyloggers, may be installed intentionally by the owner of a shared, corporate, or public computer to monitor users.
