Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type 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.

For 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 pace. What’s a Malware?

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

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is chiefly 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 is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed 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 since it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It helps the hacker in collecting 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 very difficult 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 files and information saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to create a user think they are a safe program and operate 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 may attempt to make 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 that limits access to the computer system until 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 needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
