Computer viruses and hacking

Computer viruses and hacking are potential problems for schools that might effect student’s learning. The need for students to download files and attached emails is a must especially when conducting research. The main problem is virus being transferred onto the school computers. As for hacking, although a lot of the times it is unlikely for hackers to hack the system but there’s still a chance of that for the pupose of stealing personal information or corrupt any data on the system. Sometimes the firewalls prevents that from happening, yet the firewalls can prevent teaching and learning by blocking some useful sites.
