How did I get infected by a computer virus?
Viruses are everywhere. You may get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or simply browsing the internet.
Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.
For instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems needed to take care of. 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.
As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
Adware is also referred to 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 examine which Internet sites, the consumer 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.
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 is quite tricky to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of workers.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating files and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and operate 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 might attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced type of malware that limits 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 you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.
The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
