Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems needed to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What is a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses along with other kinds of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

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

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

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It enables 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 is very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within 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 functions to eat up all of the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to make 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 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

Ransomware is an advanced sort 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 needs a ransom to be paid in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
