Since the first nefarious self-copying code was unleashed back in 1986, computer viruses have been causing your computers and devices sick. Some viruses can destroy your device, while others can slow down your computer or steal your data. In most cases, if act quickly, you can get rid of the virus from your device.

A virus is a part of code that, like the flu virus, can reproduce by attaching itself to files and programs, infect them, and later, make copies of themselves. When a virus is infected by the program, it propagates to other devices and programs linked to the same networking. These viruses can cause all sorts of damage. They can take credit and passwords or erase files, corrupt programs, or even take over your entire system.

Depending on the kind of virus, it could be transmitted from one device to another via text or attachments to emails, Internet file downloads, or social media scams. Viruses can even infect mobile devices and smartphones by being hidden within shady app downloads. Certain viruses have a playful intent and are designed to cause enjoyment, while others are designed to make money.

In most countries, creating and spreading computer viruses is considered a crime. If you’re curious about the best way to create a virus, you can do it with Notepad and other tools.
