Malware - Hidden problems in programs


What is malicious software (malware)?

      • Code that destroys the system
      • Mostly causes damage unnoticed

Can malware only be found on a computer?

      • Any terminal device can be affected (Smartphones, Tablets, etc.)
      • The operating system does not matter

How does malware works?

Usually by executing an action like…

    1. Clicking on an unknown link in the mail
    2. Requesting an unprotected website
    3. Installing a pretended “free software” with malware in the background
    4. Using unknown removable storage devices in companies
    5. Downloading a file from an attachment
