Different types of computer viruses and their effects
Let’s talk about the different kinds of computer viruses out there now.
One of the worst viruses out there is ransomware.
Most of the time you click on a link that was sent to you, and it locks your computer, completely encrypting everything. The only way to get it back is to pay them(hopefully).
The worst part is they sometimes don’t even give it back to you!
Where do computer viruses come from?
Computer viruses come from just about everywhere.
You’ll be surprised how many are out there just waiting to infect your computer and cell phones.
Most of the time we click on a link or go to a page that has ads displayed, sometimes containing viruses. By viewing the said link or page, we open a door for those viruses to crawl right in.
Not only do they come from links and pages but they are getting more sophisticated every day. It’s even possible to get a virus from Facebook, Skype, or even your email.
What I have experienced personally is that I would get a message or email from a friend and it was just a link to video or page that infects your computer.
