007Spy is a hacking tool. Though these programs are legitimate and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.
007Spy logs the keystrokes typed by the user and the websites and files the user accesses. It can capture screenshots as well.
Additionally, 007Spy can be configured to run in stealth mode, so that the user is unaware of its presence. It is possible to send the information via email or FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
007Spy does not pose a risk by itself, but it can be used with malicious intentions.
007Spy is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
