Why does a worm pose a greater threat than a virus poses?

  • Worms are more network-based than viruses are.
  • Worms are not detected by antivirus programs.
  • Worms run within a host program.
  • Worms directly attack the network devices.

Explanation: One major component of a worm is the propagation mechanism which replicates the worm and targets unprotected network devices. A virus requires a host program, but worms do not.
