Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely used by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types 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 piece of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself after 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’s 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 examine which Internet sites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it’s very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to monitor 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 type of virus that is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and run them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and 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. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
