If there is any type of financial information, then that could make spyware the most dangerous type of malware to that specific type of user. The most common spyware are web browser add-ons and plugins. Especially the third-party ones, they can relay your information to an untrusted sources and companies, they can watch your surfing habits too and collect all manner of information about you from you.
