McAfee Virus Library
So what exactly is a computer virus database? In general, it is a database or library of all of the viruses that users have come across in their time online. It also showcases new viruses and other malicious online threats, as well as security tips on how to be safe online. Most antivirus programs will have something that is similar to this formula and the computer virus database on McAfee's website is no different.
McAfee is a fairly popular antivirus program that can be used for both home and business use and though the company doesn't offer free or trial versions of their software, it is priced at reasonable rates for several different antivirus and computer protection options. On the McAfee virus library, the first thing someone will see is newly discovered viruses or malware and the level of threat they pose, as well as the date that they were discovered. Depending on the virus or malware, the threat level can be anywhere from low to that of severe.
Next to this, on the right hand side, is the Threat Meter which is positioned over the global map. These two things tie in together, as the threat meter measures global threats that may impact home and business users, while the global map shows which areas in the world have the most malicious threats.
Underneath this is the area in which users can find more information about particular viruses and malware, as well as look at some of the threats that on going - as in they pose a threat for most of the year - and of course, information about what viruses are and how to protect yourself with the McAfee software.
