Have you ever noticed that when you are working on your computer system or mobile phone, you experience some irregular behaviour of your programs? Have you ever wondered what causes this peculiar behaviour?
These are all the problems experienced by a computer system which is infected with a program known as a VIRUS. A Virus is a dangerous program which executes some instructions to induce irregular behavior of your computer system. These Viruses affects the system on various scales: some may ruin your whole system completely by deleting critical system files or some maybe created to extract information from your computer intentionally. Whatever maybe, viruses are dangerous programs which should be dealt with carefully.
With development of computing such as quantum computing an use of nanotechnology, the transfer of files from one system to another has become exponentially easier. The diabolic viruses exploit the development of computers to the maximum. They tend to use the facilities provided by the new computers against the new computers itself. The action of a virus is very fast and rarely can be detected by our common eyes or knowledge. For this a sophisticated program capable of handling with and stopping the effects of the virus is required.
The anti-virus software is created with this purpose, to detect the virus and all the infected files/folders and take various actions against it such as repairing, deleting or quarantining the infected files. Developing the anti-virus software is a sophisticated process with many procedures and responsibilities. The antivirus developers have to ensure that proper detection of the virus is a assured under all circumstances and also they have to assure that the facility of updating the antivirus is provided. The detection and the working of the antivirus is based on many methods.
In the upcoming pages, we will see how the virus works, the different types of viruses and also how it affects the computer. We will also see how the anti-virus software counterattacks the virus and by which means this is done.
