What is a Computer Worm?

The goal of a computer worm is to replicate itself in order to spread to more computers, often machines on the same network. Worms can be spread via email, instant messaging, or peer-to-peer networks such as music sharing websites. Once on a computer, a worm doesn’t need to attach itself to a particular program or file, and it can occupy a lot of bandwidth on your computer. Worms usually access your computer thanks to some sort of hole in your security firewall. Computer worms will slow down your system, and can also modify files until they are unusable. A worm can also stop the Internet from working. One of the easiest ways to avoid a computer worm is by having current anti-virus software running on your computer at all times, and an active firewall.
