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.

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 rate. What’s 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 mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, 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 functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet 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 tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server 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’s designed to create a user think they’re 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 may attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which 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 1 type of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
