The software and hardware devices intended for secret monitoring over PC users’ activity, have been widely expanded recently. In the global web – Internet – it is possible to find many resources and documents devoted to various aspects of this problem (legal, technical, political etc.). The special danger is presented by monitoring software products and hardware devices, which can be secretly installed (as a rule, remotely) without knowledge of the owner (security administrator) of the automated system or without the knowledge of the owner of a particular personal computer. This category of monitoring products can be called "spy programs".
