Cyber Stalking and Spyware Detection
Divorces can become so contentious that a spouse will often resort to cyber stalking the other by installing spyware or malware in order to gain the upper hand in a divorce settlement by obtaining information from a laptop or desktop. Spyware and key loggers are very inexpensive and easy to install and can provide a wealth of information.
The most difficult aspect of a cyber stalking and spyware or malware cases is gathering the evidence. Computer forensics can help determine if spyware or malware has been installed. In cases of cyber stalking, computer forensics experts will trace the IP address as the source of the cyber stalker. Not only will evidence be gathered to support the spyware case, but computer forensics experts will put protocols in place to stop the intrusion and prevent future cyber attacks.
