Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had 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 along with other types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is mostly 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 is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet 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 quite difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may 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 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’s designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and operate them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try to make a host system or network resource unavailable 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 before the user pays a fee. Your screen may 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 1 type of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
