The internet and computer are two of the most powerful inventions ever made. They allow us to share all types of information, including valuable digital information. In order to have access to the internet and computer, we have to know how to protect our computer and internet security. If you want to have computer and internet security for your business, then you have to know the type of threat you are up against and what you can do about it.
What is a virus?
It is a program that is able to spread and infect your computer, which is what makes it a virus. There are many different types of viruses, but now computer users mostly encounter virus attacks through programs called malware. Also known as malicious programs, these programs are able to attack your computer and/or your network and are looking to propagate to every computer in that’s vicinity.
What is a worm?
Worms are most likely the bacteria variety of viruses, and like viruses, they are able to replicate themselves. But unlike viruses, worms don’t need to have a carrier program in order to spread. They can self-replicate, completely without user intervention. Worms used to be a nuisance, but nowadays they’re considered a serious threat. They can consume as much as 10% of network bandwidth and can crash or lock up your computer.
What is a Trojan horse?
Trojans are one of the viruses that emerged from the 2000s. They were originally intended to be programs that would contain malware, but it wasn’t until they were used as a means for attackers to launch attacks that they became a major threat. Trojans are able to deceive users into opening them, and once activated, they can locate and transmit information.
An example of a Trojan Horse is the Zlob Trojan, which is a Trojan that is distributed through a video blog site. The Zlob Trojan is used to install malicious programs into the target computer. The malicious programs can contain viruses, worms or Trojan horses, and if they’re downloaded and installed they can be used to scan files on the computer or cause serious damage to the computer in question.
What are worms?
Worms are most likely the computer worms variety of the word. They’re large programs that are able to replicate themselves and use up a lot of the computer’s memory. They can also use up a lot of the network bandwidth, since they send themselves out to other computers in the Internet.
Worms can also be used to make a “zombie” out of a computer, which is a computer that will respond to a request to send a file. The Zlob Trojan is a good example of how it will spread. Once the computer is infected, the Trojan will send an e-mail to 10 people, all of them telling them that the Zlob Trojan is a file they can download to their computer. Ten people will then open the attachment, and the process starts all over again.
How to stop viruses from spreading?
You can stop viruses from spreading by using one of the many software packages that are available to scan your computer and eliminate the virus threats. It’s important to install anti-virus software in your computer, because if you don’t it will be nearly impossible to remove all the viruses that were on your computer.
The problem is that viruses have almost become a part of our normal way of life, and it’s hard to imagine life without them. Unfortunately, they are with us until the day they’re gone forever. For the infected computers that are still online, there’s nothing you can do but sit back and watch the miracles that your anti-virus software is able to perform.
