Spy Alert Description

Spy Alert is an adware application, which is advertised as a tool capable of finding cookies on various websites. While Spy Alert may seem seem to be a beneficial application, in most of the cases this tool comes on the vulnerable computer system without asking the target PC user’s consent and keeps track of browsing activity of the victimized PC user. Spy Alert makes numerous potentially unwanted alterations on the affected computer system that cause irritating pop-up advertisements and the hacked web browser’s redirects. Spy Alert adds its own extension on all compromised web browsers that are installed on the corrupted PC. Spy Alert is produced by Long Mile Solutions LLC and is advertised via the company’s website.

When attempting to prevent Spy Alert’s invasion, computer users should stop using freeware/shareware applications or download them only after unchecking unknown entries that are shown in the components list. Spy Alert keeps track of the victimized PC user’s browsing habits. Spy Alert allows attackers to get information about the compromised PC’s IP address, operating system, web browser and similar private details.
