So Tigzy's tweet popped up in my Twitter's newsfeed, and the article it linked too was just way too good to only retweet it. His article covers a lot of basic and simple terms used in the Computer Security/Malware world, and it should help users that knows little about it understand a bit more what's happening when they read tutorials, instructions or when a helper explains what kind of activity is going on their machine.
