infection host

This applies only to malicious code classified as a virus. Viruses can further be classified by the types of host executables that they infect. A single virus may infect multiple types of host executables. There are four principal infection hosts: boot sector (infection host), email (infection host), File (infection host), and File system (infection host) hosts.
