spyware and virus question........

Recommended Posts

I will be the first to admit I know NOTHING about networking computers together. Never done it. But someone asked me a intresting question. If one computer on a network gets infected, will it affect the other computers and the speeds they are able to achive on the internet??

I may have part of the answer, i suppose that if the infected file is tranfered any way, ie: picture, email, then yes, if it's a worm them I'm sure, .....ya know what, I have no business answering your question,  :oops: I just have too many now myself.........

@ninjageek

yes, one of the most common of all are the worms.. they spread through networks, they even automatically put themselves in storage devices, including cameras, phones, ipod, etc.. so that once the infected device is attached to another computer then its gonna infect that computer right there and then especially when its autorun..

(so i suggest you to right click the drive then click explore to open a particular folder/drive)

it definitely will affect your connection and pc speed  (i dont know much why, but..) coz as far as i know they take a considerable big amount of CPU Usage thus slowing your computer.

and im not sure if they have something to do about downloaders...the kind of pest that downloads malicious file from the internet. all i know is that they are somehow related. so if they keep downloading this means they are gonna take some of your bandwidth thus slowing your internet connection.
