Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized by the 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 types of malware that security systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What is a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses along with other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s chiefly 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’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 spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It enables the hacker in gathering 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 tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally in an organization to track the activities of employees.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information 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 is designed to make a user think they’re a safe program and run them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the server 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 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 that you have been locked out of your computer and you could 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 is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
