If you are a computer user or use devices related to this, then you must have heard the name of the computer worm already. But are you sure what happens in a worm actually and how is it functioning in AIMS or Programming? You will get the answer of all these questions today.
The computer worm is a dam different from other malicious programs that contain viruses, trojans, spyware, and malware. All these terms are different and have been developed for different purposes. I will only talk about the “worm” and “virus”.
What is Computer Worm
A computer worm is a malicious program that infects computer software and computer hardware. By creating a duplicate copy of the computer worm itself automatically, the storage media and computer network is entered from one computer to another computer, so it is defaced by the computer virus.
A computer worm is an invisible and automatic software that protects uninfected programs against the security virus.
This infection tab is spread when we connect to a network of infected PCs or use infected media storage.
Bass is so different in computer viruses and worms that the human body does not need help to infect another system. The virus also does not require Humans, but Humans are required to execute more wire viruses.
Worm Vs. Virus
There is also a difference in computer worms and computer viruses that to run the virus requires infected programs and active hosts. The virus enters in a different way, such as by sharing files, visiting an infected website or downloading something from there, and downloading an infected email attachment.
Neither an infected program is required nor an active host is required to run the worm. It automatically automates any network automatically. When it comes to infection speed, the worm is more dangerous in the face of viruses, which has generated sixty files at a much faster rate than downloading infected file/software, except for computer networks and active network connections.
As I told you earlier that there are viruses and worms invisible which cannot be detected by seeing. But there are some ways to detect them like after system/network performance, the program itself executes, the system overheats, the program crashes suddenly, normally a file is missing, software/file suddenly disappears, etc.
If the email is sent by your email address, then it can be a 99% warmth. Or if someone has an email address in your inbox without a sender from your email address, then this is also the power of the presence of warmth. When the worm sends its own email to the victim’s contact so that it can protect more systems than most.
To avoid worms and viruses, the system/network must first be sub-dated. Apart from this, keeping system firewalls on and using Good antivirus of WebShield is also important.
History has said that all the worms and viruses that came from 1988 to today gave very dangerous damage due to which the virus/worm victim has suffered a lot of damage. Therefore, scan your networks, systems, smartphones 2 times in the month and in any case do not turn off the firewall until it is detected why you are going to turn off the firewall and at the behest of whom.
