Malware vs Virus

Understanding 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 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 rate. What is 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.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects another software on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is chiefly known to disperse when the software 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 writer. 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 user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It helps 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 is very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all of the system operating documents 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 take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try to make a host system or network resource unavailable 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 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 needs a ransom to be paid in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
