Malware vs Virus

Knowing 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 public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems needed to take care of. 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 particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself once 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 referred to 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 examine which Internet sites, the consumer visits regularly 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 bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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 is very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed 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 server PC. It works to eat up all the system operating files 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 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 trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which limits access to the computer system until 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 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 — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
