Constant evolution

In the past, viruses and other kinds of malware would spread via spam email, booby-trapped websites which had been infected or malicious pop-up adverts. While all these are still common today, modern examples of malware causing damage have become more sophisticated, involving things like turning millions of PCs into miners for Bitcoins.

Viruses created today can be hard to both stop spreading and shift because of certain things like widespread use of wireless connections.
