Viruses Replicate Themselves and Can Spread From One Computer to Another Infecting Your Entire Network and Compromising Your Business IT Security Measures.
A virus is a computer program that can damage your computer’s data and performance. Computer viruses and other malicious or unwanted software such as adware, spyware, ransomware, computer worms, and Trojan horses can exploit security vulnerabilities of your business network. In order to replicate itself, a virus must be permitted to execute code and write to memory. For this reason, many viruses attach themselves to executable files that may be part of legitimate programs. If a user attempts to launch an infected program, the virus’ code may be executed simultaneously.
If your business network is infected by a virus or malware removing the virus and restoring full functionality of your business computer network sometimes requires a classification of the virus. Depending on the virus that affected your business network, the removal may require scan, removal, and sometimes re-installation of damaged programs.
