Beware of Malware

  • The number of malware, short for malicious software, incidents is on the rise. Once these viruses infiltrate a device, they disrupt computer operations to gather sensitive information, gain access to private computer systems or display unwanted advertising. A specific type of malware known as ransomware is designed to block access to a computer system or files until a sum of money is paid. Ransomware stops you from using your PC and holds your PC or files for "ransom.”   

    The Irving ISD technology services department shares tip for avoiding these computer viruses and steps to take if it’s too late.
