Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems had to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What is a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 author. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the user 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 all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It helps the hacker in collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the server and it’s quite difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server 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 is designed to make a user think they’re a safe program and operate 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 may try to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 kind of ransomware. It is quite 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.. ,
