Protecting your computer from malware is also a key component of IT security. Malware (malicious software) is any program or file that is harmful to your computer. Examples of malware include viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and also spyware (programming that gathers information about a computer user without permission). They are spread easily through websites, peer to peer (P2P) software, email, or on USB sticks.

Not only does malware stop your computer from working properly it can also allow people to access your personal data and prevent you getting access to your accounts.

Bucks New University recommends to install the free Sophos Anti-Virus software from the link below to protect your computer and data from unwanted virus and malware attacks

Detailed instructions on how to install it are included on the website
