Malware vs Virus

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

For instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection 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 along with other kinds 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 another software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed 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 becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. 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 quite difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It functions 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 operate them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and 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 unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning you’ve 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’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
