I need a question answered that I have put alot of thought into and the only reasonalbe answer I can come up with is Yes... So here is my question


The school I work at has a WiFi connection and we have people in and out of our school all of the time with there laptops. I was wondering if that persons laptop is infected with a virus and attaches to our wifi does that mean that they can infect the rest of the school. We have fairly good av software however once and awhile a virus does sneak by.

No. Not unless a FILE is transferred to one of your computers. Your AV software should prevent that.

And anyway, someone has to know what they're doing and work hard to get a file onto your computers. Virus's can't be transferred by casual wifi "piracy".

:D :D :D

Actualy the virus can be transfered to another laptop (or computer) if it connected to the infected laptop. But not the network.
