How to recognise a Spirus

These cyber spies delight in infecting your computer and leaving destruction in their wake. They’re fast, invisible and steal your details and account information whilst you’re not looking.

How to deal with a Spirus

Spirus can be stopped in his tracks if you:

  • Use anti-virus software
  • Regularly run virus and malware checks on your computer
  • Install the patches and updates for your apps when asked
  • Set secure passwords for your accounts and keep them secret

If someone you don’t know sends you a website link, tell a parent, carer, teacher or trusted adult. It’s best not to open links from people you don’t know.
