All About Malware
- Trojan Horses
Trojan Horses make something sound really good and like something that you want to get, but once you get them you are allowing someone to get into your computer. This type of Malware can come in things like downloading a show, game, and movie to your computer.
Spyware is another type of Malware and it's when someone is hacking into your computer and secretly getting personal information. Pretty much spyware is identity theft.
Ways to stop Malware
- get an antivirus software that you like and let it run all the time
- get a firewall so that you can control what comes into your computer
- use your common sense and think before you act
- don't be extremely curious when going online
