  3. 3. What is Spyware and Adware? <ul><li>They are independent programs that can be automatically installed when you surf throughout the internet or when you install free software. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is Spyware? <ul><li>Advertising companies uses spyware to “mine data” to further help them advertise better. </li></ul><ul><li>Uses your Internet connection and reports statistical data about you and your surfing habits a 3 rd party </li></ul><ul><li>Violating your privacy. </li></ul><ul><li>And is a completely LEGAL program! </li></ul>
  5. 5. What is Adware? <ul><li>Adware are created by advertising companies </li></ul><ul><li>Comes in the form of popups, unexplained advertising programs on your computer desktop like “Casino Night”. </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising companies hope to generate money from customers who receive the popups or unexplained programs on their computers. </li></ul><ul><li>Also a LEGAL program! </li></ul>
  6. 6. How was Spyware/Adware work? <ul><li>Spyware and Adware programs have a tendency to hide as cookie or temporary internet files </li></ul><ul><li>Adware startup has the tendency to hide itself in the register keys as normal program. </li></ul>
  7. 7. How to detect you computer has spyware or adware… <ul><li>Continuous popups </li></ul><ul><li>Persistent change in your homepage. </li></ul><ul><li>Slower computer processing, takes the computer longer to process or startup. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Extreme symptoms of spyware or adware… <ul><li>Internet browser does not start up. </li></ul><ul><li>Parts of your computer you cannot access without freezing. </li></ul><ul><li>Major core data is lost or changed. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Out of many programs out in the internet that were created to detecting spyware/adware, four programs were chosen for this presentation.. They are: </li></ul><ul><li>Spybot Search and Destroy </li></ul><ul><li>Ad-aware 6.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Symantec AntiVirus </li></ul><ul><li>Spysweeper </li></ul>
  10. 10. Rating Topics <ul><li>I gave each program a rating for: </li></ul><ul><li>Detecting and destroying spyware/adware </li></ul><ul><li>Additional features to protect the computer </li></ul><ul><li>User Friendly (How easy is it for an average Joe to use?) </li></ul><ul><li>Updates in their spyware/adware definitions </li></ul><ul><li>Cost to buy this product </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations from the technicians here at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories. </li></ul><ul><li>Rating is from 1( Very poor) to 5 (Very good). </li></ul><ul><li>Note: Each program tested detected certain programs that the other 3 had not discovered. The rating for “Detecting and destroying spyware/adware” is judged by the number of spyware/adware programs that were detected in comparison to the others. </li></ul>
