I access the internet using a modem when downloading an application from the Internet the application contain ramnit virus, I immediately stopped accessing the internet and unplug the modem from the PC.
When I would access the internet via laptop with the same modem the modem will not function properly.
Does the modem can be infected by virus?
Does the Modem Can be Infected by Virus?
The answer is no modems cannot store virus,modem can only receive and transmit signals for your internet connections. And modems don't get infected with any virus because in order to get or have virus you need to have memory and modems doesn't have any memory.
Your modem will not get any virus because it doesn't have the memory to store any other files including virus and as we know virus like Trojan,worm, spyware,and other name of viruses are all written in files meaning its a written program and in order for that files of viruses to be executed you need a storage for it and your modem doesn't have the capacity to store any other file except to transfer files from the internet to your computer.
