What types of threats are there?

There are many types of computer viruses that you can get on your computer. Some of them include:

  • Trojan Virus: A Trojan is a type of malware that is often disguised as a legitimate software. They are employed by cyber-thieves and hackers to gain access to a users system. Users are typically tricked by some form of social engineering to load and execute the Trojans on their computer. Once activated, it allows cyber-criminals to spy on you, steal your data and gain backdoor access into your system.
  • Malware: Malware is a catch-all term for any type of malicious software designed to harm or exploit any programmable device, service or network. Cybercriminals typically use it to extract data that they can leverage over victims for financial gain. That data can range from financial data, healthcare records, or personal emails and passwords. The possibilities of what sort of information can be compromised have become endless.
  • Ransomware: Ransomware is a malware that employs encryption to hold a victim's information at ransom. A user or organization's critical data is encrypted so that they cannot access files, databases, or applications. A ransom is then demanded to provide access. It is often designed to spread across a network and target database and file servers, and can thus quickly paralyze an entire organization. It is a growing threat, generating billions of dollars in payments to cybercriminals and inflicting significant damage and expenses for businesses and governmental organizations.
