PC Matic University Malware Test

Class Number Four

Welcome to the fourth in our PC Matic University series. This week’s installment is a quiz regarding your knowledge surrounding malware. Do you know what it is and the different kinds?

Meanwhile, if you missed the first three classes, no worries, you can catch The Internet Test here and link back to the other ones from there. You don’t have to take the classes in order, and you can skip one if you think it doesn’t pertain to you.

But if you’d like to learn more about malware, the different types, and basic prevention strategies, take a look at the video below.

First, let James take you through the different types of malware. Think about how susceptible you are to each of these. Next, ask yourself if you knew that all of those different types fell under the larger umbrella of malware. What surprised you the most?

Once you’re done with the video, you can take the Malware test here. And finally, run a scan on your own system for good measure.

  1. I could barely hear this video even with my sound turned all the way up so I didn’t get anything out of it. Why was there no sound control with the video itself?

  2. I NEED A PHONE # SO I CAN SET UP AND ACC. (((((((( I DO NOT LIKE TO PUT MY CARD # ON LINE ))))))))))) DO YOU GET THAT , I HAVE NOT BEEN NOTIFYED YET ????????

  3. The test is flawed — there are 4 standard responses, and 5 questions, The question for what is AdWare is broken because all 4 of the responses are incorrect. (The other 4 questions have one correct response each.) There’s no way to respond “none of the above” for the Adware question. (I’ve tried to run the test multiple times and use each possible answer for adware and they’re all incorrect.)

  4. This quiz is flawed, or at least I am missing 1 further option to allow me to give a correct answer, didn’t understand until multiple attempts, then I scrolled down to see the notes over what I got wrong, and although I did select wrong answers, in fact Every option as a wrong answer, there was no correct answer for me to view to select it, the missing answer is related to the Adware question, all I get is A, B, C and D, Virus, Worm, Trojan and Ransomware, that’s it, I tried full screen, scrolling, tried to highlight the page incase it was hidden, but nothing, I don’t see how my PC could miss this, given it gets every other option, and no errors of any kind, so I can only assume there is an issue with this test.

  5. This isn’t related but I just renewed with you for another year – $50 for 5 but got to thinking I need to put my android smartphone under your protection along side our desktop – how do I do that?
