What are malware?

A malicious program or malware is a general term for malicious software and is a growing problem on the Internet.

Hackers install malicious software without your consent by exploiting security holes in your applications to gain access to your website. The malware code is not visible and cannot be easily detected. It can infect your customers' computers simply by browsing your website.

Hackers use malware to spread viruses, hijack your computer, or steal sensitive data such as credit card numbers or other personal information.

To protect websites from attacks, you should regularly maintain your websites and the applications behind them.
