Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, 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’s a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses along with other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

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 server and it is quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It functions 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 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 might try to make 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 type of malware which limits 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 restriction 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.. ,
