Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems had to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What is a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It enables the hacker in collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the server and it’s very difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of employees.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that’s designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may attempt to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen might show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
