Malware vs Virus

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

For 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 pace. What is a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses along with other types 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 another software on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s chiefly 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’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It enables 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 is quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host 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 is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and operate 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 earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Case in point: 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 in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
