Computer Virus may kill you

Computer Virus may kill you

This Christmas eve, when the whole world was high with enchanting carols and “Merry Christmas” greetings, a heart-rending episode took place in Russia. An eight year old boy was found hanging in his room, and that’s all because of a computer virus. “Strange indeed, but how is this possible?” perhaps this must be the first reaction of most of us but this is not a spiced up news or a fabricated rumour. It may take some time to gulp this fact down the throat but in reality it shows how virtual world can defeat online privacy to invade our individualities. The chronology of events on that very day suggest that the boy while surfing through his laptop had encountered a virus manoeuvred Window stating the Criminal Code of Russian Federation on “Manufacturing and marketing materials or objects with pornographic images of minors”. Further, it reads on that the banner can be removed with ease if an SMS is send to the given number. Fearing a bash from his parents, the innocent kid decided to do away with his own life.

The tragic death of the boy implicates that if the noose is not tightened on cyber hooligans, the things can get out-of-proportion bringing in more disastrous and unanticipated consequences. Cyber looters in their looting spree can go to any extent and this is clearly inferred from the fact that every year thousands of new versions of viruses and malware are being released, thus challenging the already threatened online security. The new kid on the bloc is ransom-ware, a yet another wicked mechanism, which in some cases engages panic and indignity as its main tools to victimize innocent PC users.

On non-payment, it threatened erase their data from their hard drives. There are many such other thugs who can surpass your network security to take control of your systems and sometimes you.
