Malware vs Virus

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

For instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What’s 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 mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to 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 consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. 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 quite difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It functions to eat up all of 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 run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later 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 attempting to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which 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 limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
