Malware: The Way Thieves Gain Access

Malware is malicious software designed to infiltrate and damage computer systems, collect private data, and ultimately to commit fraud. Thieves use malware to gain the ability to monitor your keystrokes (thereby recording everything you do), take control of your computer or initiate other processes that can affect the performance of your computer. Malware is generally distributed through email, pop-up ads, social networking sites and P2P sharing sites.

Most malware is not detectable and it’s often disguised as .zip, .cab, .rar or executable files (*.exe). It’s important that you do not open any files with these extensions unless you know exactly what they contain and trust they are from a known, reputable source. Other file formats to use caution with include screensavers (*.scr), autorun (.ini) or script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml) because they have a higher likelihood of being infected by malware.
