Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, 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 kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 published on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. 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 very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host 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’re a safe program and operate them. They might 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 earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting 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 until 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 needs a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
