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.
