Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general 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 protection systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What’s 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 piece of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This acts 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze 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 hurts computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. It enables 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’s quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of employees.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It functions to eat up all of the system operating documents 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 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 attempt to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small 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 needs a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction 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 — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
