What is malware?
Malware is shorthand for malicious software that infects your system. It’s developed by cyber-attackers in order to steal personal data, gain access to your device, or cause damage to it. Rootkits, viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, worms, and browser-hijacks are all malware.
Malware is typically spread through email attachments, phishing websites, malicious advertisments, malicious software disguised as utility software, and even GIFs or text messages.
Trojans sneak into your system, often disguised as a legitimate tool.
Spyware monitors what you do online and collects data.
Ransomware encrypts the infected system, locking the user out until they pay a ransom.
Keyloggers log all your keystrokes and give cyber-criminals your login credentials.
Viruses can infect the operating system and slow it down or stop it from loading altogether.
Here’s why we ALL need reliable anti-malware every day
Hackers are continuously finding new ways to steal your data or just wreak havoc. It’s not just about security… but also preserving your freedom and confidence, and giving you peace of mind. If you surf the internet, browse, bank, shop, or connect devices to your computer or laptop, you risk malware infection every time.
For comprehensive protection:
1. Install antivirus/anti-malware software.
2. Be diligent about keeping that software updated.
