Several @Apollo employees have reported that the network access is slow. After investigation, the network administrator has learned that one employee downloaded a third-party scanning program for the printer. What type of malware might have been introduced that is causing slow performance of the network?
Explanation: Worms are malicious code that replicates by independently exploiting vulnerabilities in networks. Worms usually slow down networks. Whereas a virus requires a host program to run, worms can run by themselves. Other than the initial infection, worms no longer require user participation. After a worm affects a host, it is able to spread very quickly over the network. Worms share similar patterns. They all have an enabling vulnerability, a way to propagate themselves, and they all contain a payload.
