Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware 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 software, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security 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 in addition to other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is chiefly known to spread 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 consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It enables 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’s very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

Worms

This sort 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 sort of virus that is designed to create a user think they’re 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 may try to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which 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 that you can 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 1 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 — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
