Win32/Spy.SpyEye.CA is a spyware Trojan that is used by attackers to capture data in various web browsers. Win32/Spy.SpyEye.CA steals private data such as login credentials from affected Internet users. To grab personal details, Win32/Spy.SpyEye.CA keeps track of the victim's browsing activities and gathers information entered by PC users. Then, Win32/Spy.SpyEye.CA enters the collected data into fake forms created by itself or retrieved from legal forms and sends it to a remote server, instead of the one they are meant to be transmitted. Win32/Spy.SpyEye.CA may also install a malicious toolbar on the hacked web browser and gain any data inserted into its web-forms.
