What is Spy Alert?

Spy Alert (SPYALERT) is a potentially unwanted application created by Long Mile Solutions LLC. This browser extension claims to display any cookies used by websites when users browse the Internet.

When installed on Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla FireFox), Spy Alert tracks IP addresses, unique identifier numbers, operating systems, browser and other installed software information, web page URLs visited, and search queries entered. Moreover, this extension generates various in-text, interstitial, and pop-up ads. These ads are managed by third-parties, and clicking them can result in serious security-related issues.
