How did I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You might get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with an invoice or tracking number), downloading software or games, or just browsing the web.

Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely used by the 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 security systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What’s a Malware?

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

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it hurts computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. It enables the hacker in collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it is quite difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may 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 server PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating files 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 operate them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which restricts 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 that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
