Viruses, whether in humans or in computers, can bring tremendous damages to the system. In the business world, computer viruses are dangerous culprits that can take down organizations and enterprises in one single attack. The following are among the most popular viruses ever created:
ILOVEYOU. Who wouldn’t get curious clicking an email with these sweet words? Unfortunately, ILOVEYOU isn’t as good as it sounds. It is a type of malware and is still the most popular virus since the 2000s, and even hailed as the most virulent virus of all time by the Guinness.
CRYPTOLOCKER. This is a type of ransomware passed on through emails. Infected computers and files are held like a “hostage” where owners had to pay the cybercriminals in order to retrieve their data and information. Otherwise, they are gone forever.
MYDOOM. A kind of worm that is more destructive than the ILOVEYOU, causing billions of dollars’ worth of total damages.
