Computer infection education

24 Feb 2010 by BradB, No Comments »

There are a lot of terms used loosely when it comes to computer infections. The most commonly used term is Virus. Actually, this is the least found infection these days. Next is the term Spyware, used to describe what actually a wide range of infections is. The next series of articles will take a look at the differences and accurate terminology of computer infections. The first article will be on virus infections.

Here’s  a list of the articles to come in the next few days:

  • Virus
  • Spyware
  • Trojan
  • Rootkit
  • Worms
  • Malware

I hope these articles will help you understand what some of the common computer technology terms really mean to you and to your computer technician. Learning the differences and knowing how they work can help you identify and avoid these threats. Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
