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 software, including a computer virus.

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection systems needed to take care of. 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 by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another 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 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 writer. 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 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 performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It enables 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 host and it’s quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to make a user think they’re a safe program and operate them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may 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 that limits 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 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 one kind 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.. ,
