What is it? How can you avoid it?

What is it?

Malware is any malicious software. A malware virus copies itself and needs contacts to spread itself. Trojan Horses could be emails that seem legit but allow access to someone else. Spyware is something that secretly obtains your information.

Ways to avoid Malware would be to get an antivirus software or a firewall so people can't get your information as easy. You should always just use common sense when dealing with these things.

An example of malware could be an email that you get that looks like a normal email but when you open it it could be a virus that sends itself to everyone in your contacts to try and spread.
