Can Malware damage to the files existing on the host?

  1. Hello guys,

    I'm somewhat aware of Malware and their actions. And also know how to get rid of them and clean the machine.

    And about the Malware, we all know that Malware can spread in the form of a Worm or a Virus. Viruses are Malware that require some form of user interaction to infect the user's device. On the other hand, Worms are Malware that can enter a device without any explicit user interaction.

    OK, my question:
    Can Malware damage to our files? For example consider I have various kinds of files, from a simple .MP3 file until .iso, .xlsx, .exe or programming files and etc.
    Can those Malware damage those files so that they aren't usable or repairable?

    Generally speaking yes it's possible.
