Privacy, Security, Encryption The past few years, it seemed as if virus writers had moved away from doing actual damage to systems to instead focus on stealth, so that infected machines can silently, and unknowingly, be used for all sorts of malicious practices.

There is no plural for "virus" in classical Latin. In modern Latin, it would be "vira."
