Malware vs Virus

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

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What is 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 mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once 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 known 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 screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It enables the hacker in gathering 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 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 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 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 may try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable 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 might show a pop-up warning you’ve 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 restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
