Faster and More Complex Viruses

Viruses are programs designed to interfere with the proper functioning of a computer. They are quickly infecting every segment of the computer industry, attacking with greater frequency and efficiency due to their increased complexity.
Years ago, viruses had the ability to attack vulnerabilities in computer programs that were two years old or more. This allowed businesses ample time to patch and update security systems before the computer was confronted with an attack by the virus.
