Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, 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 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 along with other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort 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 existence is typically hidden from the host and it is very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type 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 may try to earn 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 type of malware that restricts access to the computer system until 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 limitation 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 rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
