Introducing... the RAT!

Posted: 3rd March 2016.

Help! We have a RAT at Warning Zone!

Luckily, not a real rat... rather a RAT which is going to help teach our visitors about those nasty viruses and other malware which can infect our devices. Mr RAT (which stands for Remote Access Trojan) has been introduced in our World Wide Wheel.

Similar to the Trojan horse the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy, viruses often gain access to our device disguised as something else - an email attachment perhaps, or they could be hidden in downloadable game content which you then install.

Fortunately, there are things our visitors can do to help protect against these nasty things. They can install anti-virus software, only use trusted website, and always speak to a trusted adult if they are ever unsure about anything.
