Hackers use different methods like viruses, worms, ransomwares and many other hacking techniques to get into your system. This way they blackmail you into giving them information and your whole system crumbles down.
Data shows approximately 23.5 Million malware were reported just in the months January-February. Most of them are Torjans and it seems that hackers are working more than ever to spread malware all-around Windows OS.
Another thing that came as shocking news was the android hacking and malware problems. Androids were never a target of these kinds of malware but the record has been broken and android malware is also being detected. More than 530 thousand malfunctioning software are identified and no one knows how to stop them.
Malware is something that can be quite difficult to avoid but there surely are some measures you can take to prevent your systems from getting hacked. Make sure that your software is always updated and you have the latest OS version. Most of the time older versions get malware because they do not have good enough privacy and security checks. When a new software gets released, better privacy and security are also installed in it so it is not impossible but surely difficult to hack them.
Another thing you should always be careful about is what you are downloading. Often viruses and other malfunctions come when you download a file. They instantly ruin all your software and you get confused about where it comes from. So always keep a check of what you are downloading and from where. Never click on some links you find suspicious. Because one click on the link can become a threat to your systems. Don’t click on any unsolicited attachment or link.
Important thing is to use anti-malware software. It can keep your system safe from all viruses.
