Console Cowboy's software
Once activated, Eavesdrop allows a decker to listen in on communications between other deckers and programs in the Matrix. The ability to listen, however, may not be enough - if the communication is scrambled then the decker must still decode it. Eavesdrop is typically used to extract access codes from programs as they enter a DOS Tower or pass through a channel.
An advanced stealth program, Cloak hides the user from the rest of the matrix. Cloak makes detection attempts one task level more difficult. It runs until the cloaked decker disables it, attacks, is damaged, or jacks out.
This program doubles the decker's offence score for a single attack.
A Slow Virus is the latest thing to reach the street. It is a special attack program which slowly merges with the defence score of a target without their knowledge.
Trace reports the real world location of a construct in the matrix, be it a decker, DOS Tower or even an AI.
Decoy generates a dummy image of the decker to confuse attackers.
