FILELESS MALWARE

Malicious software, or malware, is                        
dangerous software that infects
your PC, often opening back doors
for hackers to take control of the
system. Infection happens when
the user opens a file sent to their
PC. But now, there is a new threat
coming down the wires. Fileless
malware doesn’t live as a file on
your hard drive where it’s easily
found by virus scanners. Instead, it
hides in your computer’s registry
(the code your PC uses to start up),
or in your RAM (system memory),
which makes it harder to detect.
