As a result, we did not notice the information on the type of files, the size of files and even the name of files. Only by clicking one time of malware viruses, the virus could effect the operating system of computer devices.
There are many articles that have discussed about how to prevent virus infection. Such as we use reliable antivirus and update antivirus and operating system periodically.
