Virus warnings

Note: Although popularly grouped together as "virus", there are actually clear distinctions between different types of infection:

Virus: Term meant to indicate any kind of program with malicious intent. Viruses are designed to multiply and spread to other computers with human help - such as when you open an email attachment. They may or may not damage the infected computer.

Worm: A program capable of spreading by itself, without human intervention. Worms may or may not have a malicious "payload" that damages infected computers.

Trojan Horse: Similar to the famous Greek myth, a Trojan Horse is a malicious program hidden inside another seemingly legitimate program - such as a harmless game sent as an email attachment.
