Malware: How to protect yourself
BY Nick Anderson
What it is
Malware is any form of software that is designed to harm someone or something. It includes viruses, Trojan horses, and spyware. It will often be disguised as a free movie or game, or a link in an email.
How to avoid it
You can avoid malware by not clicking on links in unknown emails, and making sure that you can trust the provider of the game or movie. Do your research, and know what you are doing before you do something potentially risky.
