Why do you need anti-virus software?
One of the most dangerous characteristics of the new and
more powerful strains of viruses is their ability to spread
without human intervention. Traditional viruses typically
required some human intervention in order to spread, such as
sending an infected file to another user, or opening an
e-mail attachment to trigger the propagation.
Nimda is an
example of the new, more powerful virus strains spreading
across the Internet. This virus injected malicious text into
each .exe file on the system; escalated the privilege level
of the guest account; created readable and writeable network
shares; made numerous registry changes; and interjected
script code into html files, etc. Cleanup of a Nimda type
virus becomes difficult because the damage is permeated
throughout the entire network infrastructure.
Recovering from a virus is more expensive
then preventing a virus attack. Anti-Virus programs scan
both email and network traffic ensuring that your system does
not get infected. New virus are created daily and you need
to be ready to protect your office or home from them at all
