How did I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You might get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or just browsing the internet.

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 general 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 types of malware that security systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. 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 specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It is mostly known to disperse when the software 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 author. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the host and it is very difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed 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 of the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that’s designed to make a user think they are a safe program and run them. They may 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 might try to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may 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 for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
