A Computer System
Antivirus Tip: A computer virus replicates itself by changing the code in other programs to copy itself across a computer system.
Different Types of Viruses
Antivirus Tip: There are several different types of viruses and they all behave differently, including how they spread: virus, trojan and worm.
Using Multiple Antivirus Programs
Antivirus Tip: No single anti-virus program can provide 100 per cent protection. Using two or three programs to provide a wide security net is preferable.
full access to network
Antivirus Tip: For security reasons, never divulge who has full access to your network as they could leak the information accidentally.
Turn Off Password Savers
Antivirus Tip: Turn off the ‘save password’ function in all of your internet browsers. Write down your passwords for safe-keeping.
Use Your Own Devices
Antivirus Tip: Use your own devices, as typing your personal info on another device might result in your information being used for criminal reasons.
Use different e-mails
Antivirus Tip: Use different e-mails for different kinds of accounts, instead of just one e-mail, in case your information gets hacked.
Be Wary of Online Interactions
Antivirus Tip: Treat any interaction on the internet like a professional meeting – provide what is needed, and do not do more than what is necessary.
Analyse Online Information
Antivirus Tip: Analyse everything you read online, as a majority of the information online can easily be twisted maliciously, such as the ads you read.
