Abstract

Before an online computer lab is ready for students to perform hands-on practice, security measures need to be enforced to protect the computer lab and even more importantly to protect the university’s network. Since the computer lab is online, it is exposed to hundreds of malicious viruses. Once a computer is infected by viruses, the viruses will damage files, multiply themselves to occupy the memory and hard disk space, or to take away the CPU process power and make the computer run very slowly.
