Malware vs Virus

Understanding 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 applications, including a computer virus.

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

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is mostly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves 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 published on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, 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 annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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 host and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to create 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 may attempt to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible 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 until 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 for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It is very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
