What Is Malware?
Types of Malware
Trojan Horses: These are programs that latch on to seemingly legitimate programs that when you allow or enter into create passageways into your computer to allow others access into it.
Spyware: Spyware is a program that secretly obtains personal information. These programs usually require permission from the user in forms of entering into a sight, clicking links, etc.
1. Use Antivirus software! This will protect you from the nasty bugs that try to slip into your computer through the virtual stream of information.
2. Use Firewalls! This takes care of Trojans as they bar access to secondary sights without user permission.
3. Use you head! Common sense is the best defense against anyone with less than good intentions.
