Transcript

  • 1. Computer Virus  Computer virus is a software program written with malicious intentions.  Computer virus is a harmful software program written intentionally to enter a computer without the user's permission or knowledge. It has the ability to replicate itself, thus continuing to spread. Some viruses do little but replicate, while others can cause severe harm or adversely affect the program and performance of the system. A virus should never be assumed harmless and left on a system.  There are different types of viruses which can be classified according to their origin, techniques, types of files they infect, where they hide, the kind of damage they cause, the type of operating system, or platform they attack.
  • 2. Types of Computer Viruses  There are number of computer viruses that can impede the functioning of your computer system.
  • 3. Memory Resident Virus  These viruses fix themselves in the computer memory and get activated whenever the OS runs and infects all the files that are then opened.  This type of virus hides in the RAM and stays there even after the malicious code is executed. It gets control over the system memory and allocate memory blocks through which it runs its own code, and executes the code when any function is executed.  Examples: Randex, CMJ, Meve, and MrKlunky
  • 4. Direct Action Viruses  The main purpose of this virus is to replicate and take action when it is executed. When a specific condition is met, the virus will go into action and infect files in the directory or folder that are specified in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file path. This batch file is always located in the root directory of the hard disk and carries out certain operations when the computer is booted.  FindFirst/FindNext technique is used where the code selects a few files as its victims. It also infects the external devices like pen drives or hard disks by copying itself on them.  The viruses keep changing their location into new files whenever the code is executed, but are generally found in the hard disk's root directory.  Target: It can corrupt files. Basically, it is a file-infecter virus.  Examples: Vienna virus
  • 5. Overwrite Viruses  A virus of this kind is characterized by the fact that it deletes the information contained in the files that it infects, rendering them partially or totally useless once they have been infected.  The virus replaces the file content. However, it does not change the file size.  Examples: Way, Trj.Reboot, Trivial.88.D
  • 6. Boot Sector Virus  This type of virus affects the boot sector of a hard disk. This is a crucial part of the disk, in which information of the disk itself is stored along with a program that makes it possible to boot (start) the computer from the disk. This type of virus is also called Master Boot Sector Virus or Master Boot Record Virus.  It hides in the memory until DOS accesses the floppy disk, and whichever boot data is accessed, the virus infects it.  Examples: Polyboot.B, AntiEXE
  • 7. Macro Virus  Macro viruses infect files that are created using certain applications or programs that contain macros, like .doc, .xls, .pps, .mdb, etc. These mini-programs make it possible to automate series of operations so that they are performed as a single action, thereby saving the user from having to carry them out one by one. These viruses automatically infect the file that contains macros, and also infects the templates and documents that the filecontains. It is referred to as a type of e-mail virus.  These hide in documents that are shared via e-mail or networks.  Examples: Relax, Melissa.A, Bablas, O97M/Y2K
  • 8. Directory Virus  Directory viruses (also called Cluster Virus/File System Virus) infect the directory of your computer by changing the path that indicates the location of a file. When you execute a program file with an extension .EXE or .COM that has been infected by a virus, you are unknowingly running the virus program, while the original file and program is previously moved by the virus. Once infected, it becomes impossible to locate the original files.  It is usually located in only one location of the disk, but infects the entire program in the directory.  Examples: Dir-2 virus
  • 9. Polymorphic Virus  Polymorphic viruses encrypt or encode themselves in a different way (using different algorithms and encryption keys) every time they infect a system. This makes it impossible for antivirus software to find them using string or signature searches (because they are different in each encryption). The virus then goes on to create a large number of copies.  Examples: Elkern, Marburg, Satan Bug and Tuareg
  • 10. Companion Viruses  Companion viruses can be considered as a type of file infector virus, like resident or direct action types. They are known as companion viruses because once they get into the system they 'accompany' the other files that already exist. In other words, to carry out their infection routines, companion viruses can wait in memory until a program is run (resident virus), or act immediately by making copies of themselves (direct action virus).  These generally use the same filename and create a different extension of it. For example: If there is a file "Me.exe", the virus creates another file named "Me.com" and hides in the new file. When the system calls the filename "Me", the ".com" file gets executed (as ".com" has higher priority than ".exe"), thus infecting the system.  Examples: Stator, Asimov.1539 and Terrax.1069
  • 11. FAT Virus  The file allocation table (FAT) is the part of a disk used to store all the information about the location of files, available space, unusable space, etc.  FAT virus attacks the FAT section and may damage crucial information. It can be especially dangerous as it prevents access to certain sections of the disk where important files are stored. Damage caused can result in loss of information from individual files or even entire directories.  Examples: Link Virus
  • 12. Web Scripting Virus  Many web pages include complex codes in order to create an interesting and interactive content. This code is often exploited to bring about certain undesirable actions.  The main sources of web scripting viruses are the web browsers or infected web pages.  Examples: JS.Fortnight is a virus that spreads through malicious e-mails.
  • 13. Worms  A worm is a program very similar to a virus; it has the ability to self-replicate and can lead to negative effects on your system. But they can be detected and eliminated by an antivirus software.  These generally spread through e-mails and networks. They do not infect files or damage them, but they replicate so fast that the entire network may collapse.  Examples: PSWBugbear.B, Lovgate.F, Trile.C, Sobig.D, Mapson
  • 14. Trojans  Another unsavory breed of malicious code are Trojans or Trojan horses, which unlike viruses, do not reproduce by infecting other files, nor do they self-replicate like worms. In fact, it is a program which disguises itself as a useful program or application.  These viruses copy files in your computer (when their carrier program is executed) that can damage your data, and even delete it. The attacker can also program the trojans in such a manner that the information in your computer is accessible to them.  Examples: Trojan.Vundo
  • 15. Disadvantages od Viruses       Format hard disk Copy, rename and delete files Modify files dates and extensions Display false message every few times Damage data Damage software
  • 16. Disadvantages od Viruses         Computer runs slowly Random restarts Unknown and uninstalled icons on desktop Icons change in appearance System memory and disk space is reduced New windows open up at an alarming rate Error messages on regular basis Files mysteriously disappear
  • 17. Computer Anti-Virus  Antivirus software is a computer program that detects, prevents, and takes action to disarm or remove malicious software programs, such as viruses and worms.  There are certain types of anti-viruses.
  • 18. Best Computer Anti-Viruses  There are so many anti-viruses which works against viruses but some anti-viruses are trusted and are very famous.  There are 10 ranked anti-viruses by toptenreviews.com http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/
