Stealware refers to a type of malware that covertly transfers money or data to a third party. Specifically, stealware uses an HTTP cookie to redirect the commission ordinarily earned by the site for referring users to another scam site to steal money. Stealware also asks for Human Vertifications by robots, asking for credit card numbers, and the victim becomes poor. The owner of Stealware's goal is to steal money and identity. Stealware may ask for gambling and drinking experience for a fake prize, so that means that stealware is a synonym of Scam. Stealware will also give the data to other scammers and spammers by stealing it to a scam HTTP cookie.
