Don’t Understand Computer Viruses? Read this.

Here's a computer virus destroying data

So many clients and other people always ask me to explain viruses to them and why people create them.  I always say, “For the money.”  They’re hoping to make a profit from your credit card or bank account but unlike most credit card or other purchases they’re not giving you anything in return but computer viruses.  They are online criminals.  Criminals that have found another way to steal from people.  You.  Or they want to use your computer as part of their network bot.  To use for their own nefarious purposes such as storing porn or other data.

Here’s a great article from Scientific American about computer viruses which is easy to understand.  It also has an auditory file so you can listen.  http://techtalker.quickanddirtytips.com/anatomy-of-a-virus.aspx?WT.mc_id=10886
