Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely utilized 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 deal with. 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 along with other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself after 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 is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the server and it is very tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type 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 sort of virus that’s designed to make a user think they are 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 try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 demands a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
