The Attack on computer systems, has climbed over the last several years with Malicious Malware.  It can happen on any layer or level of software, from network protocols to applications.  The Malware is a software that has been designed for nefarious purpose, and it can cause damage to your node.

There all types of Malicious software that can cause damage to your node, like viruses, Trojans, Logic Bombs, and Spyware.  The adware is a different type that deals with advertisements, with legal adware.  The users are aware of the ads, and agrees to the terms for the use of the free use of the software.

Logic Bombs are types of Malicious software that is deliberately installed, generally by an authorized user.  A Logic Bomb is a piece of Code that sits until it invokes, the Malicious payload.   So why are we more prone to get these Malicious Software’s?  Well like popups that come up on a website that is not supposed to be there, could cause you to get infected my a Trojan, virus or any other type of threats.

The Blue screen of death, can be caused by viruses, Trojans or even Logic Bombs, and 

Before Windows Server 2012, each BSoD displayed an error name in uppercase (e.g. APC_INDEX_MISMATCH), a hexadecimal error number (e.g. 0x00000001) and four parameters. The last two are shown together in the following format:

error code (parameter 1, parameter 2, parameter 3, parameter 4) error name

Depending on the error number and its nature, all, some, or even none of the parameters contain data pertaining to what went wrong, and/or where it happened. In addition, the error screens showed four paragraphs of general explanation and advice and may have included other technical data such the file name of the culprit and memory addresses.

With the release of Windows Server 2012, the BSoD was changed, removing all of the above in favor of the error name, and a concise description. Windows 8 added a sad emoticon as well. The hexadecimal error code and parameters can still be found in the Windows Event Log or in memory dumps. Windows 10 Build 14393 added a QR code for quick troubleshooting.
