Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses 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 applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. 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 specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be bothersome.

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 existence is typically hidden from the server and it is very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It functions 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 create 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 may try to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting 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 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 in order 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’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
