Latest Virus Alerts

Having Anti-Virus Software should strengthen your chances of being clean of a Virus, Worm or Trojan that could infect your computer and cause you all kinds of problems. Below gives a brief explanation about what could infect your computer.

Remember that new viruses are written everyday and if you intend having Anti-Virus software on your computer it's important to get the Software updates, which include protection for all the latest Viruses.

What is a Virus?
A Virus is a program that propagates itself by infecting other programs on the same computer. Viruses can do serious damage, such as erasing your files or your whole Hard Drive, or they may just do annoying things. True viruses cannot spread to a new computer without human assistance, such as if you trade files with someone else and give them an infected file (such as on a floppy, by an email attachment, or downloading a file from a webpage).

What is a Worm?
Like a Virus, a Worm is also a program that propagates itself. Unlike a Virus, however, a worm can spread itself automatically over the network from one computer to the next. Worms are not clever or evil, they just take advantage of automatic file sending and receiving features found on many modern computers.

What is a Trojan?
A Trojan Horse is a malicious security-breaking program that is usually disguised as something quite innocent, (ie: A free game, free software, mp3'z, picture and possibly other internet downloads) that can damage and compromise the security of your computer. It does not replicate or copy itself and is also passed on by someone emailing it to you. As soon as its opened it starts to cause all kinds of havoc, usually silently, and without the user even knowing its there until the damage has been done, such as erasing or modifying your files, even downloading other Trojan horse programs designed to steal your passwords.

Many Trojan Horses may also allow dishonest people to take over your computer and control it, or use your computer to perform (DoS) Denial of Service attacks on other Internet users.

Trojans are executable programs, which means that when you open the file, it will run and perform some kind of action. Executable programs have file extensions like "exe", "vbs", "com", "bat", "pif", "scr", "lnk", or "js". It is always better to know the original source of any email attachments and not to open anything you are unsure of, especially if it has any of the above file extensions.

Again, getting yourself a good Firewall and Anti-Virus Software program lessens your chances of being a victim of this kind of attack. If you have been a victim of a Trojan then there are a number of ways in which they can be removed, try Hack Fix the site that's dedicated to helping people stay informed about Trojan Horse programs, how to find out if your infected, and how to remove these Trojans safely from your system.
