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 used by the general 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 needed to deal with. 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 types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another software on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. 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 could be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor 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 documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to make a user think they are a safe program and run them. They might 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 make 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 you’ve been locked out of your computer and that you can 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 type of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
