Abstract

The goal of this report is to investigate public awareness of worms and viruses in order to draw meaningful conclusions about what type of people contact viruses and what actions make these people vulnerable. By using survey results, this investigation will link types of computer users to rate of virus infection The discussion will prove that there is a strong correlation between unskilled computer users and their high rates of virus infection. The survey and analysis will give insight to security measures people can use to prevent infection.
