How can I get infected by a computer virus?

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

Malware vs Virus

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

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What is 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 piece of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse 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 published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

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

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host 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 is designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and run 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 might try to earn 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 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 you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

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