When we think of a virus, we think about an illness affecting us or someone we know. We take medicine but with computers we have to think differently. A computer virus is a program created to gain information or cause harm.
In our day to day lives we use our computers and when something goes wrong it's like the time stops. What do we do? When our computer has a virus it could be brings everything to a holt. We have to ensure all files are backed up, the virus has been stopped and our computer is clean to use. Without these steps we could be helping the attacker gain a lot of information about us whilst you carry out your day to day activities.
Remember: When you get a virus on your IT systems, did you know how quickly it can spread? Cleaning it up is not so quick so take action asap otherwise it can take more of your time and cause damage to your files.
