What is called Antivirus software?

            Antivirus software


Antivirus software, or anti-virus software (AV software), also known as anti-malware, is a computer program used to prevent, detect, and remove malware.
Antivirus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect users from: malicious browser helper objects(BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware,keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious LSPs, dialers,fraudtools, adware and spyware.Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam,scam and Phishingattacks, online identity (privacy),online banking attacks,social engineering techniques, advanced persistent threat(APT)
and botnet DDoSattacks.
