What is virus?

VIRUS (Vital Information Resource Under Siege) is an unwanted program of computer which used to destroy programs that we are using. Virus also bread computer system. It can track your activities.

According to Wikipedia: A computer virus is a malware program that, when done, replicates by means of inserting copies of itself (almost certainly modified) into different laptop packages, knowledge records, or the boot sector of the tough pressure; when this replication succeeds, the affected areas are then stated to be “infected”.

According to Webopedia: A PC virus is a software or piece of code that’s loaded onto your laptop without your advantage and runs in opposition to your wants. Viruses may also replicate themselves. All computer viruses are man-made. A simple virus that may make a duplicate of itself again and again is reasonably handy to produce.

An even more unsafe kind of virus is one in a position of transmitting itself across networks and bypassing safety methods. Read More…

Conficker virus

Conficker is one of devastating computer viruses. Conficker is also known as “Downup” or “Downcup” which released on 2008. No one does not know clearly – who has created this virus. However, the virus is named for two different countries, different combination of two languages. The word “Conficker” came from English word “Comfigure” and Jarman word “Pejorative”. It uses flaws in the Windows OS application and dictionary attacks on administrator passwords to propagate while forming a botnet, and has been strangely difficult to counter in view that of its mixed use of many developed malware systems. Which is used for trafficking your data.

CryptoLocker Virus

CryptoLocker was a ransomware trojan which targeted computers running Microsoft Windows, believed to have first been posted to the Internet on 5 September 2013. CryptoLocker propagated via infected email attachments, and via an existing botnet; when activated, the malware encrypts certain types of files stored on local and mounted network drives using RSA public-key cryptography, with the private key stored only on the malware’s control servers. The malware then displays a message which offers to decrypt the data if a payment (through either Bitcoin or a pre-paid cash voucher) is made by a stated deadline, and threatened to delete the private key if the deadline passes. If the deadline is not met, the malware offered to decrypt data via an online service provided by the malware’s operators, for a significantly higher price in Bitcoin. Read More…
