Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general 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 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 along with other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is chiefly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the consumer visits frequently 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 online actions. It helps 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 server and it’s 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 information and files saved on the server 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 operate them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may 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 which limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

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