It can be used to compromise systems, steal sensitive information, or gain access to networks that are supposed to be private. Examples of malware would be things like computer viruses or spyware. Viruses, similar to viruses spread among people, can move from one computer to another within a network or through a certain program.

Without proper protection, you or your company's network may be vulnerable to fraud, phishing, or any number of viruses that could greatly affect your system.
