Malware vs Virus

Knowing 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 general 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 protection systems had 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 specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is mostly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. 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 user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type 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 presence is typically hidden from the host and it is quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within 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 functions to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that’s 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 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 inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts 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 needs a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
