How can I get infected by a computer virus?

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

Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, 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 security systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What’s a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other types 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 the other applications on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It is chiefly known to spread when the software 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 author. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it harms computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type 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 presence is typically hidden from the host and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

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 make a user think they are a safe program and run them. They might 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 attempt to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 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 rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
