How can I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You may get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or simply browsing the internet.

Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind 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 instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection 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 types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly 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 is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. 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 consumer visits frequently 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 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 presence is typically hidden from the server and it is very difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating documents 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 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 might try to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which limits 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 demands a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
