VIRUSES

What is a virus?

A computer virus is simply a software program created by an individual or a group of people that has been designed to run on a computer and carry out a malicious task. A virus can be programmed to carry out any type of malicious task on an infected computer. For example, steal files, record keystrokes of a computer, prevent or disable virus removal programs, cause harm or damage, restrict a computer, steal information or display advertising.There are many different types of viruses with different names and classifications for example: Malware, spyware, Active X, Adware, Trojan, Worms etc.

A virus can spread by many different ways. For example a virus can store itself on a USB memory stick. It can be attached to an email. Downloaded from a website.
