Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one kind 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 types of malware that security systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What is a Malware?

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

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 published on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, 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 hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It enables 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 difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be set up intentionally in 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 of the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that is 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 try 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 sort of malware that limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It is very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
