Do you really know the dangers of malware?
It is a natural and logical question to ask oneself because some of the alarming stories you read in the newspapers are really not very reassuring. Let us discuss this in a little more detail.
First of all, there is a sort of malware known as a Trojan Horse that is designed to get into your computer. When you visit a website, it jumps on your browser and starts to install a program onto your computer. Now, when the program gets installed on your computer, it becomes part of your system files. That means, it will stay even after you uninstall it.
This kind of malware can be extremely dangerous because it poses a threat to your privacy. For example, you are at home and the doorbell rings and a stranger enters your house. You will definitely feel uncomfortable because you don’t know who the stranger is, and he might just enter into your house, get into your computer, or steal your personal information.
The thief may also use security and safety signs to help him enter your home. If you see a suspicious person entering your house, take some precautions such as taking out the deadbolt, putting locks on your window and the back door, and closing the garage.
Another danger is that when hackers download a program to your computer, they have access to your personal information. That includes your credit card numbers, address, social security number, etc. If your computer is infected with malware, you won’t be able to recognize your personal information.
These are just some of the problems people are facing nowadays because of malware.
Some of them get infected by viruses or spyware, which is another form of malware. Some of them are infected by Trojans that are transmitted through emails or through the Internet. It may look like spam mail.
Some malware is transmitted via the Internet and other forms are transmitted through the mail. It may be in the form of mails or advertisements and your computer can get infected.
The latest form of malware is a type that gets transmitted through the Internet. It is called “malware”, which stands for malicious software.
This is a dangerous form of malware because it has become very sophisticated and it gets rid of your data files without your knowledge. The name “malware” means malicious software.
According to antivirus experts, the virus that creates a problem for your computer is not software but malicious software. There are so many types of malicious software.
You should take care when you surf the Internet. Do not open email attachments that come from unidentified senders.
Do not visit suspicious sites and do not download unknown programs from unknown sources. Do not click on ads that pop up because these are malicious ads. Always keep your anti-virus software updated.
