HTML

CAN HTML FILES CONTAIN VIRUS?

Hypertext Mark-Up Language. Or simply "text with formatting". For example, to define a paragraph in HTML: <p>This is a SENTENCE!</p>

WHAT IS HTML?

01

HTML is "plain text with formatting".

HTML is not an application, it is not an executable on a computer.

HTML cannot change the system settings, cannot access files.

No direct ways to "infect" a computer, thus cannot contain a virus.

HTML CANNOT CONTAIN VIRUS

03

HTML is technically safe, but still can be misused in many ways.

E.G. Websites that look like legit banks, asking for login/password.

E.G. Websites that prompt for "an update", but downloads a virus instead.

HTML IS STILL NOT SAFE
