Malicious code refers to tiny pieces of code that can wreck computers: viruses, trojan horses, worms, etc. They are introduced to a computer when the user thinks they are doing something else (like opening an email or an attachment, or clicking on a hyperlink) and inadvertently grants access to the malicious code. Once into a computer, some code can gain access to other computers on a network that are connected through a common server.
The comparing mind refers to tiny thoughts that can wreck people: greed, resentment, avarice, etc. They are introduced to a person when the person thinks they are doing something else (like watching TV, scrolling through social media, or listening to a friend talk about their vacation) and inadvertently grants access to comparing thoughts. Once into a person, some thoughts can gain access to the rest of the person, including their heart.
