How can I get infected by a computer virus?

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

Malware vs Virus

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

By way of 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’s a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other types 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 part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s 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 consumer 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 hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It helps 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 host and it’s quite difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

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 type of virus that is designed to make 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 host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which limits 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 for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
