I found this rather interesting. It basically describes the differences between viruses, trojans and worms.

I was just reading another MalwareBytes article about ransomware. This stuff is devastating when it attacks.

LOL! Ya know part of my thoughts are why there is such a current distinction between types of infections. As far as I'm concerned an infection is an infection. I don't care what it is specifically called, it is still an infection and not wanted.

Sigh, I should not say this but can't resist. Trojans are not just to prevent infections but also pregnancy. :rofl2:

Got my MalwareBytes newsletter this morning, haven't had time to read it properly yet though, I did see they have a new extension for Chrome and Firefox browsers, don't know about Edge yet.
