WHAT IS COMPUTER VIRUS?


A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user. However, the term "virus" is commonly used, albeit erroneously, to refer to many different types of malware programs. The original virus may modify the copies, or the copies may modify themselves, as occurs in a metamorphic virus. A virus can only spread from one computer to another when its host is taken to the uninfected computer, for instance by a user sending it over a network or the Internet, or by carrying it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, or USB drive.

TROJAN HORSE

Trojan horse program is a malicious program that pretends to be a begin application. Trojan horse program purposefully does something the user does not expect. Trojan horse are not viruses since they do not replicate, but Trojan horse programs can be just as destructive. Many people use the term to refer only to non-replicating malicious programs, thus making a distinction between (Trojans and viruses).

SALAMI ATTACK
Salami attack is a series of minor data-security attacks that together results in a larger attack. -For example, a fraud activity in a bank where an employed steals a small amount of funds from several accounts, can be considered a salami attack. Crimes involving salami attacks typically are difficult to detect and trace.

Example when is occur;


- Rounding down interest calculations and placing the difference in your account.
