most promising method

Attackers can get to your computer with the help of file viruses, downloads from the Internet and infected emails. This is the most promising method, since a huge number of users still do not use antivirus programs or do not follow the security updates of the operating system. Infection, especially through mail, is not a new method, but it is still surprisingly popular. In mailings, attackers use macro viruses, which antivirus programs do not immediately detect, because the user personally launches them. The email suggests to the user that the attachment contains an important document — for example, an apartment bill. When opening a document in MS Word, the Office package warns that the document contains a macro, but nevertheless many users click the «Enable Macro» button. In this way, attackers are able to execute commands on the computer in the background.
