Adware, Spyware - What's The Difference, Really?

Spyware - everyone who uses a personal computer has heard of it. 

It's been aptly named by its opponents to induce the sort of aversion it merits. Spyware does just what it says it does - it spies. It's software that spies. More specifically - it monitors all activity on a user's computer and reports its findings to its creator. 

Why would someone do this? To make money, of course.

Secret bank accounts. Transferring money off-shore thanks to the help of money-mules. Millions of dollars in losses because of a single computer file. It sounds like the plot for a hot new movie or a popular espionage novel, doesn't it? Unfortunately, it's the backstory behind the Zeus Trojan program, and more than sixty people have been charged in the United States as well as 11 EU citizens. What's more, however, is that authorities have suggested that nearly $200 million has been stolen in connection with this malware since 2006, making it one of the most serious cases in cyber-crimes history around the world.
