SpyEye is a type of malware which Cybercriminals use to steal online banking credentials, credit card data, passwords, and other personal information. SpyEye has infected more than 1.4 million computers globally, and its silent attack means you’re delivering your information straight to criminals.

SpyEye works like this:

1. SpyEye uses in-memory injection, or DLL injection, a technique used for running code within unauthorized computer processes

2. SpyEye’s injected code then “hooks” into textboxes and collects this information: login credentials, passwords, credit card information, and every other type of personal information imaginable.

3. You end up delivering this information straight to Cybercriminals.

But when SpyEye meets Comodo’s Containment Technology, where all unknown files go into Containment, the results are devastating for SpyEye:

1. SpyEye tries to inject its malicious code.

2. SpyEye FAILS—miserably. In Comodo Containment, malware simply cannot inject code into other processes.

3. Another safe and secure Comodo user

Comodo is the only antivirus company that brings proven, battle-tested containment technology to enterprise.
