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 general 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 protection systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What is 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 is a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This behaves 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 screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It enables 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 host and it is quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed 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 functions to eat up all of the system operating documents 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 later 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. Example: your small 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 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 kind of ransomware. It is quite 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.. ,
