Malware vs Virus

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

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems needed to deal with. 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 applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s 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 examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort 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 presence is typically hidden from the host and it’s quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all 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 run 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 might try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type 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 you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
