Worm Removal

A worm is very different from a virus, malware, spyware and adware. A virus can modify a file or make it corrupt. A malware can delete a file and cause loss of data. A spyware will secretly steal information and pass it to the intended source. An adware will plague your system with ads, pop-ups and will also potentially pass your browsing history, pattern or behavior to potential buyers. A worm is a kind of virus but it doesn’t have any of the aforementioned purposes.

A worm doesn’t need a file or any kind of host to get attached to. It doesn’t need a medium or a device to get transmitted. It doesn’t change a file, corrupt it or steal information. It simply spreads. A worm is programmed to spread through a network, affecting all devices connected to the network and since the internet network is connected to every device that is hooked on, the possibility of a worm affecting the global internet network is pretty high. But that doesn’t happen easily since users do have effective protection at various levels.
