How a Computer Virus Spreads and What You Can Do To Prevent It

I recently ran across this article with an awesome infographic on how computer viruses get spread across the internet or networks and end up infecting your computer. It also has suggestions for what you can do to prevent it. 

I agree with the article’s suggestion to ignore that the infographic was created by Norton 360 Online, because the information is too good to ignore in spite of its creation by a commercial antivirus company. 

So once you scroll down the page the infographic is impossible to miss. It divides the information up between seven different ways that you can unwittingly unleash a virus onto your computer. 

Each of the seven ways has two columns one for how the virus is acquired and one for how it could be prevented. 

Go check out the infographic for yourself, and make sure you’re doing all you can to stay virus free!
