Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is very 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 software, including a computer virus.

For 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 rate. What’s a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another software on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program 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 printed on the display presented to the consumer 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 hurts computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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 host and it’s very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be set up intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information 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 make a user think they are 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 may attempt to make 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 sort 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 demands a ransom to be paid in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
