- Trojans.- Are programs that do not cause great damage like viruses do, because their target is to penetrate the system without the user been aware of it, and that is when they set up a bridge between the victim’s computer and the computer of the host, so he or she can recollect all the private information. There are also cases in which the registers of the operative system are modified, such as blocking certain programs and some web sites.
- Spyware.- This is a spy program which is able to record what the victim does, what web sites he or she goes to, the e – mail that he or she receives, the passwords of accounts, the programs used, etc. All of this information can be distributed without any permission through the net, it could happen that the extracted files are shared with P2P programs, such as in the torrent files, so they are beneficial to third parties.
- Worms.- They are tiny programs that tend to duplicate themselves, until they occupy a considerable amount of space, which end up filling the virtual memory, causing the system to take longer to perform the execution of programs, such as when the computer’s starting mechanism is starting and when you finish your session.
