The objective of this chapter is to give an insight to virus, virus infection, and prevention in cybercafés. Specifically, it gives the meaning of virus, types of viruses, classification of viruses, sources of viruses in cybercafés, why cybercafé systems are vulnerable to attacks or infections, how to detect virus infections or symptoms of virus infection in cybercafé systems or networks, virus prevention and control, and future trends. It is argued that with the advent of WiFi technologies, virus writers can launch their dubious malcode from just about anywhere in the world, and as such there exist a form of cyber-terrorism that cannot be easily stopped.
