Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the general 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 protection 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 kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s mostly known to spread 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This sort 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 server and it is very difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor 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 files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that’s designed to create a user think they are a safe program and run 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 attempt to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning that you have 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 1 type of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
