What is a computer worm and how does it spread?

A computer worm is a form of malware, just like its more notorious cousin, the virus.
Where a worm differs from a virus is that it typically doesn’t infect or manipulate files on its own.
Instead, it simply clones itself over and over again and spreads via a network (say, the Internet, a local area network at home, or a company’s intranet) to other systems where it continues to replicate itself.

Welcome to Smokeys License Give Away
« Reply #1 on: July 05, 2017, 07:18:07 PM »
This years Give Away will be slightly different to previous competitions.
This time there is NO question.
You pick the license that you would like and then add your name to the relevant Vendor request post.
If you would like a license for MalwareBytes..... just add a reply to the MalwareBytes license request post. ( just add.... 'Yes Please')
Depending on the number of licenses we have from each Vendor... winners will then be picked at random from each Vendor request post.
Unfortunately there won't be enough licenses for everyone.

Licenses available are for the following Programs: (in alphabetical order)

Emsisoft AntiMalware
Emsisoft Internet Security
Eset NOD32
Eset Internet Security
Eset Smart Security
Malwarebytes 3

Because of the ransomware news lately, we have chosen these programs because of their anti Ransomware capabilities.

The Give Away will run from Monday 10th July until Sunday 16th July.

Once again Quizmaster will be helping me with the organizing.

Good luck to you all.
