    It was a great achievement by man that he invented a computer to help him solve his problems. We built a machine which can think of its own to solve our problem. On the hardware structure, we built programs that can add features to our computer. Devil too might have seen the growth this fabulous invention of human being. He had his pals ready with programs that were later known as virus. A virus is a program which compromise the reliability of a computer, it may harm your data, erase it or stay quietly in your system. It may store your financial or other vital information compromising your security. Now a days, there are many names for a virus according to its behavior. But the basic fact remains the same, it is meant to harm your system, data or your privacy.
