PostSubject: What Should I Know About Computer Viruses?   Sun Oct 29, 2017 12:40 am



Computer viruses are damaging, self-replicating programs which can spread from one computer to another via the Internet, a network, or a detachable computer device such as a printer, floppy disc, CD or USB drive. Over the last decade, the proliferation of Internet usage in offices and homes has propagated the spread of computer viruses and the demand for virus detection and virus removal software. Due to its dominance as the most widely-used operating system, Microsoft Windows is the most frequently targeted platform for virus creators. In contrast, Apple operating systems are less likely to be infected by computer viruses, a feature which is often emphasized in Mac advertising campaigns.

The most commonly understood means of preventing computer viruses is to refrain from opening email attachments of an unknown origin or suspicious name. However, computer viruses can also be spread through text-based emails and instant messages, if the user clicks on an infected web address link within the message. Once inside a host computer, a virus may attach itself to an executable file within a certain program. Once the program is opened, the virus’s code will execute and replicate itself. In order to avoid detection, many computer viruses employ stealthy hiding techniques which are written into their code, such as the ability to even interfere with anti-virus software.
