Malware vs Virus

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

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection systems had to take care of. 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 kinds of applications 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 piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This acts 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 author. The advertisements are published on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

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

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server 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 make a user think they’re a safe program and operate them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and 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 business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that restricts access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning that you have 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 limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s quite 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.. ,
