File types: File types and sizes can affect the server because if we have larger image files such as High definition JPEG files they will take longer to load and allot more space than a low resolution jpg file. Software: Software on the server can cause crashing issues if an item on there is not software friendly. Software can also be buggy or weak causing hackers to get in through the buggy backdoors. Viruses and how they can affect systems: A computer virus is software that goes from one computer to another and that messes with computers workings. A computer virus may delete data on a computer, gain access to an e-mail program to spread the virus to other computers through a message, or even delete everything on the hard drive. Computer viruses are most easily spread by attachments in e-mail messages. Therefore, you must never open an e-mail attachment unless you know who sent the message or unless you are expecting the e-mail attachment. Viruses can also be seen as funny images or sounds these are known as Trojan viruses.

Anti-virus software is the main form of defence against viruses getting into a system. An anti-virus software program is a computer program that can be used to scan files to identify and get rid of any viruses across the system and then eliminate it when it’s found. Anti-virus software typically uses two different techniques to accomplish this: 1) looking at files to see for known viruses by means of a virus dictionary. 2) Find different behavior from any computer program which might indicate a virus is present. Once the anti-virus software finds the source of the virus it will alert the user of the particular server this will then give different options on how it will terminate the virus. Once the virus has been destroyed the computers on the server will continue to run fine.
