Humans and electronics… Who would have thought technology would become such an indispensable part of our lives, present in every segment? Sure, the Industrial Revolution of the second half of the 18th century signalled great changes, but no one could have predicted exactly how essential machines would be to us in the 21st century, particularly our beloved electronics. From our homes to our workplaces, everything relies on the use of gadgets and devices to fulfil tasks and exchange information in a short amount of time. Our lifestyles revolve around the use of PCs, tablets and phones.
And yet, there’s an aspect we often overlook: the dreadful situation when a virus attacks. The reason for this is because we are more or less careless when it comes to protecting our prized electronic possessions while criminals are restless and always finding ways to come up with more advanced and damaging malware and viruses. The best preventive measure we can take is rely on virus removal service of professionals. Even in the case of dealing with harmful malware, it’s better to leave it in the hands of experts than experiment on our own and put our valuable data at further risk.
The first concept of a computer virus ever to be discussed happened throughout the period from the 1940s to the 1960s, more specifically 1966 when mathematician John von Neumann published his paper called Theory of Self-Reproducing Automata where he described the virus as a mechanical organism that would cause damage. The first virus to be created, to check the plausibility of von Neumann’s concept, was Bob Thomas’s Creeper program back in 1971 whereas the first Trojan, then called Animal, emerged in 1975 thanks to John Walker.
The credit for the first PC virus goes to Pakistani brothers Basit and Amjad Farooq Alvi known as the Brain which started spreading through floppy disks in 1986. Fast forward to today, we’re faced with all sorts of cybersecurity danger. Most of the times we aren’t even aware we’re responsible for the infection thanks to the ingeniously devised scam viruses, such as the Australian Federal Police virus, ransom-ware and Microsoft call. When getting the proper virus removal service, we don’t just get virus-free but also receive the adequate protection, in the likes of backup data storage and anti-virus software.
Since every infection is rather unique on its own depending on the data that’s been affected, professionals can tailor a security plan to suit the requirements of your computer and eliminate damage.
