20,000,000 POSSIBILITIES TO INFECT YOUR COMPUTER

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF VIRUSES?

1  Money. Most attacks are driven by organized crime. Computer security has become a multi-billion dollar industry. When you’re attacked, the information and money stolen typically lands in the hands of criminals.

 

2 Ego. There is still a small percentage of legitimate hackers that attack computers and networks for the bragging rights. These people will attack at random, just to say they could do it.

 

3 Destruction. Some security threats are delivered for the sole purpose of destroying the target or causing them harm. These are usually targetted by an attacker that has an axe to grind with the target.

 

4 Espionage. Cyber warfare has become more prominent as computers become a part of everyday life. Even world governments are using infections like Stuxnet and Flame to attack computers in Iranian nuclear operations.
