What is malware?
Malware is short for «malicious software»: Malware are harmful self-propagating programs or bits of code that allow harmful actions to be performed on a computer. This usually happens in the background so that the user of the computer does not notice. There are various types of malware. These include viruses, worms, trojans and spyware.
