Malware vs Virus

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

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems had to deal with. 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 in addition to other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, 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 after it is run. It is mostly known to spread when the program 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 printed on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine 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 because it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

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 presence is typically hidden from the server and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that is 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 might try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that restricts access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s quite 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.. ,
