Do You Need An Antivirus Solution?

Owning a computer or a number of electronic devices is not such a big thing anymore. World has changed and now people cannot imaging their life without such gadgets and devices. These electronic devices have simplified and automated so many things in our life and made it easier BUT just like organisms fall sick SO do your devices, computers and other electronic gadgets/machines by the attack of Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Malware, Spyware, Ransomware, Scareware etc.

The Viruses/Wormware are usually dangerous &designed to corrupt, delete, destroy or take your data like important files, documents, information, contacts, password and transmit it to the one who owns the virus securely.

Viruses usually “hook” onto a particular operating system’s process and then make it impossible for your system to run smoothly whereas Worms run independently in background and do the same damage.

 

Trojans look like friendly applications (which maybe you downloaded some application from an unverified website) but on their backend is a virus which takes your data and pass it on to the hackers since you gave permission for the Trojan to run on your computer.

Malware (short form of malicious soft-ware) /Spyware are those programs whose aim is to reside within your computer without your knowledge (so beware of downloading pictures/files/applications from unknown sources) and then they keep stealing your data and sending it to the hackers. Malware can come in many forms – Adware, Spyware, Ransomware, and Scareware. Malware can make you a part of “botnet” which makes you known openly to hackers for them to carry out their illegal activity using your computer.

Our working efficiently and fast now depends on how well your machines/devices are performing. To keep them in good condition one must consider installing latest Antivirus Software to protect your computers data, your work and crucial information like bank details, pins, passwords, contacts etc.
