Spyware and Internet Explorer

Although not an A+ objective, it is essential that every administrator understand the risks of using Internet Explorer to browse web sites. There are numerous security flaws within Internet Explorer, many acknowledged by Microsoft & fixed, but many are still open for exploitation. If you choose to use Internet Explorer to browse the web (as opposed to Mozilla, Firefox or any other third party web browser), you must be cautious of “spyware” installing itself without your knowledge - even if you keep the security settings at maximum.

There are many thousands of different spyware programs, almost all of them malicious in some way. Some hijack your home page, add “featured” tool bars, run advertising software or even try to steal personal details such as credit card numbers. This section will briefly introduce some useful tools that can prevent spyware from taking over, and remove it if it already has.
