BE CYBERSMART -HECTOR'S WORLD
"It is important to remember that this is an issue of behaviour, more than it is of technology.
We really need to get serious about behaviour and support schools to focus on building a
culture of respect and caring in addition to teaching the traditional academic subjects."
Dr Judith Slocombe CEO, The Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

Key issues addressed
Malware is any kind of bad
(malicious) software. A computer
virus is one type of malware. There
are different types of malware, and
it is a serious threat.
Malware can steal your passwords
or other personal information.
It may also let a hacker take
control of your computer, so they
can pretend to be you online or
use your computer to commit a
crime. Malware will probably slow
your computer down, and may
corrupt, destroy or delete your
files. Malware can also forward
itself from your computer to other
computers without your knowing
Computers can be infected from
an email (attachment), a bad or
dodgy download from the web, or
from an infected USB (flash) drive,
CD ROM or DVD.
AT THE COMPUTER In this game-based activity, the
student moves a scanning beam by
using the arrows on their keyboard
to scan all the downloads—USB
memory sticks, email attachments,
DVDs, CD-ROMs and hard drives.
Each of these objects contains
either a piece of fruit (positive
points) or a virus (negative points).
The student must scan each
download before it docks, in case
a hidden virus eliminates all the
fruit. This fun game encourages the
student to scan all downloads for
potentially harmful viruses.
To conclude, the student chooses
answers for three questions about
computer viruses. If the student
chooses an incorrect answer, they
are prompted to choose again until
the correct answer is selected.
