Downsides of Digital Communication

MOST COMMON TYPES OF MALWARE
*TROJAN HORSES- when you think that something that you are downloading or opening is legit, then it ends up letting someone else access to your computer and the information on it.
*SPYWARE- files on your computer that secretly obtains personal information; can be as simple as the internet looking at what you look at to know what ads to put on your computer. However hackers can get into these files and take your personal information.
HOW YOU COULD PREVENT BECOMING A VICTIM OF MALWARE
* FIREWALL- controls what connects to your computer.
*COMMON SENSE- do not do anything you do not trust 100%. And if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
