Computer viruses are pieces of software that are installed in your system without your permission , with the aim of disrupting your IT systems, or utilising your IT systems to infiltrate or disrupt other systems. Protecting yourself by using Anti Virus solutions or anti malware protection is essential.
How Viruses attack
Viruses are almost as old as the invention of home computing. Originally viruses used to be copied into your computer through an infected floppy disk. However with the advent of the internet, viruses and malware are becoming more widespread, and more disruptive. These snippets of software are installed on computers through downloaded files and even by accessing certain sites. The most dangerous viruses or malware lie there without causing any major issues, so the without user knowledge they can “steal” all the information they require. The cost, both direct and indirect, of having a virus attack your IT system or company network is huge, and can result in loss of data, or malicious use of your data.
