Closed Can a virus spread via home network? Tags: Security Connection Computers Virus Apps Last response: January 27, 2012 9:32 PM in Applications Share chicago30 April 13, 2010 1:25:34 AM If I connect an infected computer on my home network, can I infect other computers on it? I ask because I want to remove a virus from someone else's computer but I have to connect it on my home network. Anyone have options on this?

A virus (such as ConFicker) Uses this to their advantage. That's how ConFicker was able to spread so fast. However, if you catch the virus fast enough, the likelihood of it spreading is low. | Report abuse SR-71 Blackbird Security Authority April 14, 2010 8:01:48 PM yes without a doubt,like matan said usually with a lack of protection! | Report abuse Mousemonkey January 27, 2012 9:32:07 PM Best answer selected by mousemonkey. | Report abuse Mousemonkey January 27, 2012 9:32:10 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Applications>Can a virus spread via home network?> Related ressources: ForumWARNING: Zone Labs web sites spread virus and spyware!
