    • A.

      Phishing

    • B.

      Malware

    • C.

      Internet Scam

    Correct Answer
    B. Malware
    Explanation
    Malware refers to a type of software that is designed to appear as a legitimate application but actually aims to access and steal personal information stored on a user's computer. It is a malicious software that can cause harm to the user's device and compromise their privacy and security. Unlike phishing, which involves tricking users into revealing their personal information, malware directly targets and attempts to extract this information without the user's knowledge. Internet scam, on the other hand, is a broader term that encompasses various fraudulent activities conducted online, but it does not specifically refer to software disguised as an application.
