Botnet, Trojan, ran­somware... media reports are increas­ingly rid­dled with tech­nical buzz­words. Do you know what’s behind all this jargon?

So that you know what terms like Tro­jans, worms or ran­somware are all about, our glos­sary pro­vides you with a brief descrip­tion of the most impor­tant tech­nical terms all around your dig­ital security.
