Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite 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 applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had 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 software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts 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 published on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the user visits frequently 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 annoying.

Spyware

This type 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 is very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all the system operating files 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 run them. They may 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 earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Example: your 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 you’ve 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 is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
