Identify two (2) ways that computer viruses and worms differ. (Choose TWO.)
A virus cannot infect encrypted files; a worm can modify any file in the local file system.
A virus propagates by executing malicious code; a worm propagates by reconfiguring network configuration files.
A virus attaches itself to files or applications; a worm usually resides in memory, and does not need to attach itself to a file or application.
A virus-infected program or file can be detected and repaired with appropriate antivirus software; worms cannot be detected or eliminated until they attempt to infect other computers.
A virus can infect other networked computers only when its infected file or application host is opened; a worm can infect other networked computers any time its infected computer host is on a network.
