Computer Viruses and Threats Explained By Common Craft

Common Craft has recently released a great video entitled "Computer Viruses and Threats Explained." The three minute video explains how computer viruses, worms and trojans work and what you can do to protect yourself.

According to Common Craft's site:
This video explains computer viruses by comparing them to human viruses and focuses on the role of prevention in being protected. Major points include:
  • A basic look at computer viruses as computer programs that can spread like a disease and can be prevented by anti-virus software.
  • An introduction to worms, how they cause damage in networks and can be prevented by software updates.
  • An introduction to trojans, how they trick people into downloading a virus and how awareness is important for prevention.
You can watch the new video on the Common Craft website.
