    Do you want actual spyware or do you want something to remove spyware? Your post leans to the first option, at least how it is phrased.

    Mac Virus/Malware Info by GGJstudios
    There are currently no viruses for Mac OS X in public circulation, only a handful of trojans and other malware, which have to be installed manually via entering the administrator password.
    The only anti-virus you need to protect your Mac is education and common sense.

    And no need for anti-spyware on a Mac, either! :D
    Read the Mac Virus/Malware Info link that simsaladimbamba posted.

    Even if one existed and I knew where to find it, it would be irresponsible to pass it around.

    Again, what exactly do you want?
    An actual spyware application or something to remove it?

    And if it is the first, then it would be irresponsible in a way, as we don't know what your intentions are.

    Why should a responsible computer user help someone infect another computer with spyware? I'm not going to assist anyone messing up someone else's computer; some of us have ethics.

    OP - what do you wish to do with it? If you mean you wish to install it to spy on other users of the computer in your household...well, that is deceitful. If you wish to install it on another's computer...well, that's illegal.

    What I'm getting at is you will not likely find much sympathy here. May I suggest you search Google?

    Jesss I meant to protect my mac, I would not be so low as to spy on other people, I hate the people who send out stuff like that.

    • Does that mean you are asking for spyware protection then, as was asked before before by others to be clairified, and never completely answered by you?
