What is Virus?

What is Virus

 'Virus' literally means 'poison'. This toxin enters the body of living organisms and stays in the organs, showing its hand. That element forgets its own work; It is becoming a factory that produces more and more toxins. 'Computer poisoning' is a malicious program designed to destroy the software, hardware, information, or all of these.

Computer malware is designed to be similar to biological toxin techniques. Pretending to be harmless software, Garlic enters your computer and multiplies itself many times over. In this process, it consumes most of the common memory. Destroys the most effective programs.

The computer virus was first born in the Bell Laboratory under the name 'Core Wars'. It was in the handwriting of a self-taught software engineer that the virus showed its cruel face to the world. Until then, however, the mechanism for creating the virus had been kept secret. 

One of the best computer experts, when receiving a prestigious award, revealed to the audience the secret of creating malware. The computer shocked the whole world. After that, the harassment became serial. Since then, the computer world has been plagued by tens of thousands of malicious programs.

Most of them are created by students who want to show their intelligence to the world. These have resulted in a loss of billions of rupees. Malware makers often target the Windows operating system. Due to its widespread use in the world,

The virus comes in three basic forms. They are classified as File Infectors, Boot Sector Viruses, Trojan, and Trojan Horse Viruses.

File infections attach themselves to executable files and spread to other files while running the program.

The boot sector malware writes its own mutant program instead of the boot sector registered in the master boot record of the hard drive or the boot sector of the floppy disk. 

These malicious programs automatically settle into memory when your computer starts up. (The world-shaking 'Michael Angelo' toxin belongs to this category of 'initial disk toxins'). Trojan horse toxins look like honest programs at first glance. But, when you run them, they deceptively damage your information.

 For now, toxins are becoming an unwelcome reality in computing life. We must learn to live in the midst of these threats. For some reason, in the early days, Microsoft ignored this terrible threat. But now Microsoft is taking the crime very seriously in Windows XP. Numerous software companies offer antivirus programs to protect your computer from virus attacks.

'Antivirus' is a program to protect your computer from toxins. There are plenty of such toxins. They have made the life of programmers somewhat easier.

Here are two tips to protect your computer from being infected with the virus:

1. floppy disks are the primary source of toxic programs. So be very careful when using floppy disks.

2. Nowadays, the Internet is the birthplace of the production of toxins. Be very careful when selling files from the Internet. Update (up-to-date) the anti-virus library of your anti-virus program. It is estimated that one hundred new toxins are released each month. 

The situation is getting worse. Regular updates on antimicrobials will help protect your computer.
