A Quick Online Security Dictionary!
Not all that different from the viruses that make us unwell; a computer virus is a small programme that infects your computer, replicates itself and ultimately causes damage.
A piece of software that gets on your computer without you realising and tracks what you do.
Emails or websites that trick you into handing over private information like your bank details.
Unwanted email that can be either just irritating or more sinister by delivering viruses.
A virtual wall between your PC and the internet that checks that everything coming in and going out is safe
