Learning how hackers hack computers allows me to defeat viruses when they try to defeat me. I have never faced straight on a virus but I do have friends that have. One of my friends faced a dangerous virus and lost control of his computer to a hacker. The virus took control of his computer and webcam and didn’t allow for it to be terminated. I walked step by step with him to fix it and we ended up fixing his computer and I dissected the virus on my own computer using a virtual machine.
