What is a Computer Virus or a Computer Worm?

A computer virus or a computer worm is a malicious software program that can self-replicate on computers or via computer networks – without you being aware that your machine has become infected. Because each subsequent copy of the virus or computer worm can also self-replicate, infections can spread very rapidly. There are very many different types of computer viruses and computer worms – and many can cause high levels of destruction.

How to protect yourself against Computer Viruses and Worms?

It’s recommended that you install anti-malware software on all of your devices – including PCs, laptops, Macs and smartphones – and that your anti-malware solution receives regular updates, in order to protect against the latest threats.
