According to our survey, 88% of respondents had suffered from leakage of personal information and experience distress.

What cause your privacy leak? It’s data-stealing malware. Malware steals personal and proprietary information by means of direct use or underground distribution. Personal information security threats that fall under this umbrella include keyloggers, screen scrapers, spyware, adware, backdoors, and bots. However, when these threats result in file download or direct installation, as most hybrid attacks do, files that act as agents to proxy information will fall into the data-stealing malware category.

These malicious softwares infiltrate a computer system without the owners’ informed consent. Some malicious malware wait for the users to access banking websites then spoofs pages of the bank website to steal sensitive information. Some covertly monitors web-surfing habits, uploads data to a server for analysis then serves targeted pop-up ads. Some steals personal information such as account names and passwords related to online games. Some modifies the hosts file to point to a different DNS server when banking sites are accessed then opens a spoofed login page to steal login credentials for those financial institutions.
