The chapter examines the concepts, history, sources, spread, detection, and removal of computer viruses. The increase in the number of computers and accessibility to Internet has made it easy for hackers to invade systems all over the world. Computer viruses have reached epidemic numbers in many computer environments resulting in computer security vulnerabilities. Cybercafés systems/networks are potential objects of virus attacks due to the fact that they are connected to the Net. Cybercafé managers should have a good understanding of the risk and controls associated with various security technologies. It is the hope of the author that adequate awareness and understanding of the destructive devices by cybercafé managers and computer users generally will help secure their systems. It is recommended that cybercafé administrators develop a security policy for both employees and users.
