Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general 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 take care of. 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 along with other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s mostly 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 author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

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

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally in an organization to track 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 of the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to create a user think they are a safe program and operate 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 may attempt to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which limits access to the computer system before 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 for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
