Computing Virus and Malware Landing Page
On this page:
Malware (malicious software) and viruses can hold your data hostage (ransomware), silently steal your information, or use your compromised computer as a foothold to attack others. Installing protective software, such as Sophos anti-virus and Crowdstrike Falcon endpoint protection can help detect and prevent malware before it spreads. These two software packages work in tandem to detect threats by using different approaches (signature and behavorial) and augment each other.
- For more information on how to classify and secure your data, see Information Protection @ MIT.
