Avoiding Malware and Spyware

  • Spyware infection is becoming more common and has an increasing number of problems. There are many ways that can make it easier for an employee to get infected with spyware. In fact, it has been known that the most common way that employees are infected with spyware is by browsing the internet, either for the first time or a very long time.
  • Malware usually arrives on a PC by connecting to it via an email attachment or an HTML file. When an infected computer gets connected to the Internet, it comes in contact with the software that is available online.
  • Viruses, spyware, and Trojans are found in email attachments. They could also be received from the various social networking sites or in instant messaging programs such as MSN Messenger. When a program like MSN Messenger is opened, the computer that receives the file will also receive the virus.

The virus may also be opened while a file is being downloaded or in real time, while it is being downloaded, or it may be sent to the system through a spam-mail. Since all of this is happening at once, it makes it possible for the virus to get on the computer with very little effort.

One of the primary ways that a person can be infected with spyware is when they are just surfing the web for the first time. They may never realize that they have been hacked until the email attachment or the malicious website is opened, bringing them into contact with the spyware.

Once the virus is in the system, the user does not realize that the computer has been infected and is only when they check the Internet, that they realize that they have been infected. There are some viruses that are easily spread through email attachments.

Other viruses are spread through the computer when the user is just browsing the web for the first time. When a person is searching for an article or a topic, he or she will usually look for the link to the article or page. When he or she finds the link to the page, the virus will be open and then will infect the system.

The internet offers many sources for viruses, viruses that are known as Spyware, which are referred to as Adware or Malware. Most of these are easy to install and are downloaded through the World Wide Web.

The main reason why Adware is being used more is because of the fact that it is easy to operate, it is inexpensive to purchase, and it is highly contagious. This is why it is very important to protect the network security that a business has. Having a proper data security plan will allow the business to maintain their network security and increase their business profits.
