Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What’s 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 mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly 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 writer. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze 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 because it harms computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet 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 host and it’s very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It works 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 make a user think they’re 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 may try to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
