Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very 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 applications, including a computer virus.

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems had to deal with. 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 another software on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This behaves 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 printed on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, 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 functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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 server and it’s very difficult to detect.

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

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 type of virus that’s designed to make a user think they are 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 may try to earn 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 might show a pop-up warning you’ve 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 restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
