Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general 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 types of malware that security systems needed to deal with. 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 types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s 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’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the user 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 all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. 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 server and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is 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 server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts 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 that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It is quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
