Virus/Worm Attacks

Viruses are computer programs which attach themselves to other programs of the computer, thereby causing the system to crash or corrupt data that is stored in the system. They spread in numbers and infect more files in the system upon entering. Worms are also malwares but they do not need other computer programs to attach themselves. They work by their own to modify the operating system of a computer. When somebody is responsible for introducing viruses or worms to a computer, these cases can be easily dealt with Sec. 43 and 66 of The Information Technology Act, 2000.
