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 general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, 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 pace. 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 software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It is chiefly known to spread when the program 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 published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer 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 functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. It helps 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 server and it’s very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This type 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 sort of virus that’s designed to create a user think they are a safe program and operate them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later 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 inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: 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 may 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 needs a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
