Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely used 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 kinds of malware that security systems needed to take care of. 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 in addition to other kinds of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 writer. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it harms computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It helps 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 installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort 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 type of virus that is 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 later take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might attempt 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 sort of malware that 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 that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
