What does a virus do?

While everyone knows that getting a virus is bad, what is it that a virus actually does? For all the trouble they cause the idea, at least, is simple. A virus is a piece of code that makes up a kind of computer program which can infiltrate your computer and replicate itself. When the program replicates it can take over parts of other programs and alter their efficiency. It can also destroy parts of programs or files. While other kinds of malware like adware or spyware are also threats to internet security they lack the ability to replicate and spread like a virus can.

Identifying a virus and ridding your emails or computer of it can be a difficult task since, as mentioned, some viruses can get past the malware protection software on your computer and even make it less effective.
