How to Avoid Hacking Viruses


Hacking viruses are computer programs that can steal personal information and remotely control a system. They are spread via peer-topper networks, email and websites that offer downloads of content. You can avoid an attack from hackers by updating your software, avoiding downloading from unreliable sources, and staying clear of vulnerable networks.

Hacking viruses is used by cybercriminals for a variety of reasons. They may want to infect computers with keystroke loggers, which record every word that a device user type, giving the perpetrator all the information they need to steal their identity and gain access to bank accounts, credit card numbers as well as other valuable information. Or, they could make use of a compromised computer as part of a network known as a botnet that could be used to send out spam emails or launch attacks on other devices.

A virus could be created to overtake the device’s functions by changing its homepage or redirecting search results to an unwelcome web site, or replacing the results of a search engine. This type of hacking is known as a backdoor virus.

In the past, hackers who relentlessly tried to find low-tech ways to evade secure telecommunications systems as well as expensive long-distance calls were called phreaks (a combination of freak and phone). Today most victims of hacking viruses have nothing to do with do with telecommunications or the desire to play with technology. They are the unfortunate victims of hackers who exploit vulnerabilities in security systems built-in to steal sensitive information about individuals as well as disrupt others’ normal computer usage and cause financial harm to those they are targeting.
