What is Malware?

Article Rating: 2 / 5 Votes: 2

Malware, short for malicious software, can be installed on your website by hackers who are able to find weaknesses on your web server. A typical website may have thousands of potential vulnerabilities for malware injection.

 

Once placed on a website, malware can then be used to spread viruses, steal personal or financial data, and even hijack computers. It is not easily detected and may infect your customers' computers after they visit your website. Ultimately, this negatively affects your business reputation and can result in lost business.
