Malware vs Virus

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

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems needed to take care of. 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 along with other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It is mostly known to disperse 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 screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It enables the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the server and it is quite difficult to detect.

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

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may 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 type 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 needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
