Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized by the 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 take care of. 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 in addition to other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s mostly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves 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 published on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze 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 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 collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence 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 workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information 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’re a safe program and operate 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. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts 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 that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
