How can I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You might get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with an invoice or tracking number), downloading software or games, or just browsing the web.

Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite 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 applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had to take care of. 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 types of software 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 software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is 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 is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. 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 very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is 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 take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may try to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your 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 might 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 1 type of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
