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 had to take care of. 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 applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the software 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 author. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine 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 since it harms computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It helps the hacker in gathering 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 could be set up intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It works to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that’s designed to create 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 may try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen may 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 in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It is quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
