What is malware?

Malware is an abbreviated term for ‘malicious software’; as the name suggests, it’s software that’s intended to either damage or gain access to your laptop or PC. Originally starting out as experiments by those with a little too much time on their hands, malware is now used to make money via organised internet crime. For those with computers, it’s a serious issue that cannot be ignored.

Of course, different malware creates different issues and some are more serious than others. Some common types of malware include viruses, spyware, keyloggers, worms, adware, zombie computers and more.

How can you reduce your risk?

There are many ways that you can reduce your PC or laptop’s risk of infection. Take care when opening email attachments (especially those from unknown senders), try to avoid suspicious websites, and install and maintain a quality antivirus program.

Our computer consultants offer IT managed services; for businesses in particular, this is a great way to ensure all computers are kept up to date with the latest antivirus software.

From Gippsland and Warragul to Goulburn Valley, we can take care of computer viruses and malware!

If you suspect that your PC or laptop has fallen victim to malware, stop using it. Turn it off and call in the experts, as this can help to reduce the chance of damage or having sensitive information stolen.
