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

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It is chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the user visits frequently 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 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 host and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information 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 sort 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 server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try to earn 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 that 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 that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
