Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between malware and viruses 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 applications, including a computer virus.
For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems needed to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What’s 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.
As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.
Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the consumer 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 since it harms computer performance and can be annoying.
This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it’s quite difficult to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.
This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a sort of virus that is designed to create a user think they are a safe program and run 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 attempt to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that 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 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 1 type 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.. ,
