Some Examples of Malware

These are some examples of malware that would be most damaging to your business:

Viruses: A kind of self-replicating software that will eventually slow down and cripple your computer systems which will inevitably destroy or alter data held on them.

Spyware: This is one of the most dangerous ones. This software will spy on the user’s activity which will capture the information if they enter any of the business’ passwords, account information or any other private information. A ‘keylogger’ records what is types and sends it back to the criminal.

Ransomware: Ransomware is slowly becoming one of the biggest and most notorious types of malware. Ransomware locks down your computers so they are completely unusable. Then, the criminals demand that a fee is paid (in cash and more recently in Bitcoin) in order for the computers to be released.
