Mata Hari, maybe, or Aldrich Ames…  What if I told you that there are spies right here in Sacramento? Today’s spies use digital tools to infiltrate your lives instead of speeding around in cars and shooting out windows. These tools are referred to as spyware, and with these programs, modern spies can find your credit card numbers, social security documentation, and other personal information you’d prefer to keep private.
