What is a Worm?
A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program. It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computer terminals on the network) and it may do so without any user intervention. Unlike a virus, it does not need to attach itself to an existing program. Worms almost always cause harm to the network, if only by consuming bandwidth, whereas viruses almost always corrupt or modify files on a targeted computer.
It is always good to update your operating system. Outdated versions offer a very high risk of infections. It is not only important to have a updated operating system, the next step is also important:
2. Latest Virusscanner
For maximum protection, you should always have the latest anti-virus and anti-spyware software, to reduce new risks. Often users do not know which virus scanner they should use for their security, because there are so many now available.
