Our virus removal company is able to eliminate it, but usually, this type of support is done off-site as to remove rootkit completely requires a whole lot of time of investigation.

How did I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You may get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or simply browsing the web.

Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection 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 in addition to other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software 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 screen presented to the consumer 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 all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It enables the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it is very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and run them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the server 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 which 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 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 type of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
