Get descriptions of the more common types of things that infect computers and networks.

This article has a nicely done compilation of words that are used when the topic is computer security.

Easy and clear reading including definitions of these terms:

Malware

Spyware

Adware

Rootkits

Virus

Trojans

Worms

The definitions are all drawn from Wikipedia - you could look them up yourself but this a nice presentation.
