How many spyware threats are there?

Not known

The exact number of spyware threats is not known.  Anyway, here are some of the most popular spyware threats: CoolWebSearch, Gator, 180search Assistant (delivers pop-up ads), ISTbar/AUpdate, Transponder (vx2), Internet Optimizer (redirects web pages), Blaze Find, Hot as Hell (dials expensive numbers for porn sites), Advanced Keylogger (takes screen shots), and TIBS logger.  The main idea is that Spyware can impair the proper functioning of your computer, cause things to happen that you do not authorize.
