Why do people send viruses?
It would be anti-productive for such companies to produce viruses as they would only give decent/advanced and better programmers ideas as to new holes in an OS. Thus snowballing themselves with new viruses to deal with.
I have been known to write the odd piece of malicious code, but i would never use it on anyone but myself. I do it to prove I'm a reasonable programmer and that i understand what an OS is doing in certain instances.
It is a quesiton of morality when a programmer or hacker releases code for the use of destruction and corruption, sadly there are more destructive programmers than non-destructive in the virus industry.... BUT luckily there are companies which devote their time to fighting these nasty bits of code, undoing damage is much harder than causing it, and to those companies (though for the most part they charge a crap load for their products) i salute them
Most of the time you get them by visiting websites that either put viruses on their page intentionaly or someone else puts them on that page. People can not just press a button to send a virus to your computer they have to send an email with an attachment that you must open and run which most people will suprizingly fall for if the email isn't in their spam folder.
Viruses and worms usually send themselves to all of the victim's Outlook contacts, but since very few people use desktop contact programs anymore (since everyone has a cell phone), most troublemakers are now making trojans, which are downloaded by the unsuspecting user in hopes of getting a helpful feature from it.
If you had a virus on your computer can you spread the virus to others by viewing pages over the internet?
Viruses attach to a cell and send a disease throught the body by killing off the cells or infecting them. Well that's what they do in simple terms. ____________________________________ viruses infiltrate a cell, then use the cell to reproduce, which damages or comletely desroys the cell. then more viruses come out of the cell an ifiltrate more cells, so the viruses spread through the body. this is also true because my science teacher said so
Viruses have the ability to greatly affect life on earth. Many viruses, such as HIV and influenza have killed millions of people. By studying viruses, scientists are able to develop vaccines that will protect people (and animals) from viruses.aimsely.com As an aside, the most common virus is the so-called "common cold". Also, flu viruses can be deadly as well.
Viruses are very bad for your computer. They can: Steal passwords and files along with everything else Crash your entire system Slow your computer down Use up disk space Allow other people free access to your computer (Trojans and back-doors) Take over your computer Use your PC to send spam messages (bot-nets) Display annoying messages at a certain date or time. Viruses can do almost anything on your computer.
Viruses are things you can get by downloading false programs and all sorts of other things. They steal information from your computer and email people in your email contacts and send the virus to them so over 300 people get the virus. Anti viruses dectect the virus by scanning and a warning will come up saying Caution a virus has been detected or something like that. You never want a virus. Especially Trojan horse or…
The biggest ganger - is from viruses ! Some people open any emails they get - without asking themselves whether they actually asked for the email in the first place ! The commonest way people send viruses, is by attaching them to an email. The person opens the email without checking it first - and ends up with their computer infected ! The lesson is - never open an email you didn't ask for…
Skype is not a viral or spyware-containing program, although it is possible (though unlikely) that people could send you viruses over chats. However, this risk is identical to that of any other communication client on the internet. There have been a number of viruses specifically designed to target Skype users. Be cautious on Skype (and other IM's) do not click on links unless you are sure that you are being sent one. How they generally…
