Spyware is an emerging internet security threat.
Advertised as a means to improve internet connection speed and gain other benefits, some spyware, when installed, redirect and reroute the internet connections of users through the spyware servers. Communication traffic and customer transactions routed through such servers are susceptible to unauthorized access and disclosure. As a result, customer PINs, passwords, usernames, credit card numbers, account identifiers, financial transactions and other confidential data might be exploited.
Customers are advised to regularly scan and protect their computers from spyware, keystroke loggers, viruses, worms and trojan horses using updated anti-spyware/anti-virus software and firewalls.
