Link on Kaspersky Lab Research and Report - it includes not only virus but also other threats (malware, spyware, etc) - for reference purposes

From the sources above, as per my understanding as a ordinary PC user , I can say that RedShell is not a spyware program but the real topic should be “ is the integration of the Redshell.dll file to ESO game client without transparency and acknowledge of its players/users?” since RedShell is a third party analytics tool developed by Innervate, Inc (https://innervate.us)

However in the ZOS Privacy Policy that I had agreed when I install the game at the first time, there was one paragraph saying like this https://account.elderscrollsonline.com/privacy-policy

Analytics Tools. We may use internal and third-party analytics tools (see our Cookie Policy at http://www.zenimax.com/cookie_us for a list of third parties) to collect and aggregate activity data and other data across multiple channels
