User Query: Malware fright

Q- I bought a new computer and connected to the Wi-Fi internet. Using the same network I visited some websites and downloaded some applications on my old PC that may have spyware, viruses, etc. Will those “viruses and spyware” go to my new computer too?

– Rupesh L

A: Yes, there is a strong possibility of infection into the network that can infect all computers on the network. The best bet is to take the infected laptop off the network and reset your network completely.
