Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized by the general 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 protection systems had 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 along with other kinds of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. 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 spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it harms computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

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

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It works 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 create a user think they’re 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 may try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small 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 may 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 restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
