Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

For instance, 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 software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

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

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it harms 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 existence is typically hidden from the server and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information 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 type of virus that is 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 server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try 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 sort 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 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 1 type of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
